Join the Green Kirkland Partnership and EarthCorps as we continue to work in Crestwoods Park. Originally homesteaded by Andrew Nelson in 1877, the site was acquired in 1968 to be developed as a community park. Recent work in Crestwoods was initiated in 2012 as part of a partnership with the rock band, Pearl Jam. To mitigate for carbon emissions generated during their 2009 World Tour, the band funded restoration of 33 acres of urban forests in Kirkland, Redmond, Kent, and Seattle, including 9 acres in Crestwoods Park.
We know you are excited to get back to restoring our parks so EarthCorps has implemented some new procedures to help you do so! You can read them here and watch this video to do your part to volunteer responsibly.
No experience necessary and tools and training are provided! Just come ready to learn something new.
