Group of Volunteers


 volunteer with wheelbarrowThe Green Kirkland Partnership's goal of restoring natural areas in the City of Kirkland's park system is made possible by the countless volunteers that are involved with our program. These volunteers donate their time removing ivy from our parks, entering data in our office, recruiting more volunteers at outreach events, and much more! Read below to learn about the various ways to volunteer with our program. 

Restoration Volunteers (One-time Events):

Volunteer with the Green Kirkland Partnership one time or many times at a volunteer restoration event. There are events in parks throughout Kirkland during the week and most weekends. Volunteers at restoration events spend their time removing invasive plants, like Himalayan blackberry and English ivy, spreading mulch and planting native trees, shrubs and ground covers, No experience is needed to volunteer at an event, simply dress for the weather, bring water and a snack and we will provide everything tools, training and everything else.

Our Green Kirkland Stewards program trains volunteers who are interested in taking an ongoing leadership role in the restoration activities of a park. Our staff gives these volunteers the training and support needed to lead their own volunteer events and to conduct ongoing restoration in City-owned parks.  

If you are interested in learning more about the Steward program, please read the Steward Volunteer Position Description and contact us for more details.
