King Conservation District, Forterra, and the City of Redmond are partnering together to launch a new pilot Neighborhood Steward program, and you can be a part of our kickoff celebration! Get your hands dirty and come out to volunteer at our first-ever work party at Redmond’s East Valley Heights Natural Area. Help us remove invasive weeds in order to restore the health of these forests.

Everyone can help! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. We provide all of the tools and training needed.

So bring along your friends and family and get your hands dirty!
