Have a hand in restoring Seattle’s forests during our biggest party of the year, Green Seattle Day! We want you to dig in, and to get out into your local neighborhood to help us kick off our planting season. Join the fun at 15 parks across the city, and be one of hundreds of volunteers planting thousands of plants in parks throughout the Emerald City! All community members are welcome, and no experience is necessary! The event is family friendly and open to all ages. Volunteers will plant trees and other plants that will become the future forests of Seattle. We hope you will all lend a hand in the neighborhoods you live in, and volunteer at the closest park near you!
Spots do fill up quickly, so please sign up in advance to help us plan a great event.
