The Green Kirkland Partnership works to engage the local community in the restoration and care of natural areas in City parks.
Welcome back volunteers! The City of Kirkland has approved the re-start of Green Kirkland volunteer stewardship events led by our partners at EarthCorps.
Events with EarthCorps in Kirkland parks will resume in September and our volunteer Steward-led events may resume later in fall.
To keep us all safe you can expect some changes including:
- Shorter event sessions with small group sizes
- Pre-registration is required with no option for drop-ins
- Face coverings are required
- Other steps for maintaining safe distance and sanitation
Our event calendar links to EarthCorps registration pages where you will find even more information for each volunteer session.
We look forward to having you out in the forest this fall!
Who We Are
The Green Kirkland Partnership is an alliance between the City of Kirkland, nonprofit partners, businesses and the community to restore and maintain more than 500 acres of natural areas in the City. The majority of the restoration efforts are accomplished by our dedicated volunteers. These volunteers may join us one time or volunteer many times. It takes everyone to restore our natural areas!
Your Forests Need YOU: Become a GKP Steward!
Share your love of natural spaces and your park with the world by becoming a Green Kirkland Steward.
Stewards are dedicated volunteers who share their joy by leading volunteers in restoration projects in their local parks. Stewards bring a diversity of interests, skill, and time to our parks - we encourage all that are interested to attend orientation.
Stewards receive training, resources such as plants and tools, and access to restoration professionals to help you succeed.
Visit our Volunteer Page to find out more. Be sure to email us if you are interested in joining the Steward program and we'll work with you to get you started!
