Green Kirkland Partnership

GKP Volunteers

The Green Kirkland Partnership works to engage the local community in the restoration and care of natural areas in City parks.

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!

Thanks to Green Kirkland Day Volunteers!

Many thanks to the 185 volunteers that joined us and our partner EarthCorps for the fifth annual Green Kirkland Day! Steady rainfall did nothing to dampen spirits as volunteers planted hundreds of native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers in five Kirkland parks. Volunteer efforts at this event and throughout the year ensure that there will be healthy forests in Kirkland for future generations! Although Green Kirkland Day is over, there is still time join us for planting this fall! See our full event calendar for more opportunities to volunteer.

Green Kirkland Day is made possible by the partnership between EarthCorps, City of Kirkland, Forterra, and King Conservation District. And extra thanks to PCC Community Markets - Kirkland, REI, Mercurys Coffee, and Clif Bar who donated yummy snacks that kept volunteers moving on a drizzly day!

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!

Check out our video that highlights Green Kirkland Stewards sharing their love of natural areas and the diverse ways that they give time, talent, and energy to their parks and community.
