REGISTER TO ATTEND
Attendees will spend the morning learning about the Green Kirkland Partnership, the Steward Program and the basic ideas behind environmental restoration and urban forestry. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of current Stewards who are actively restoring forests and natural areas in Kirkland. The group will also head outside to get hands-on training in leading volunteers and removing invasive plants.
No commitment is required at to attend this orientation, simply an interest in learning more! Once the Orientation is completed, attendees will have the option to become a Green Kirkland Steward, pick a park to work in and set up a site visit with Green Kirkland staff. Those interested in continuing in the Steward program are asked to attend Steward Fields Skills training day on May 5th from 10am to 1pm.
We are currently focused on recruiting new Stewards for Watershed Park, Everest Park and North Rose Hill Woodlands Park, but are potentially open to Stewards interested in other parks in the City.
What’s a Green Kirkland Steward?
Green Kirkland Stewards are trained volunteers who take a leadership role in the restoration activities of a City-owned natural area park. These volunteers are given the training and support needed to lead their own volunteer events and to conduct ongoing restoration. Green Kirkland Stewards have different backgrounds, but are united by a desire to get themselves and their communities involved in restoration of urban forests and other natural areas.
