Join the Green Kirkland Steward team!
Did you know that a fun and dedicated team of 50+ super volunteers called Green Kirkland Stewards help engage our community in the restoration of over 500 acres of natural parkland in Kirkland?
Stewards bring a diversity of interests, skill, and time to our parks in this long-term, ongoing role. We encourage all that are interested to attend new Steward orientation. Orientation is free, open to the public, and is a blend of online and in-person sessions.
