Building on the success of the Green Seattle Partnership, Forterra replicated and modified this model, building similar community-based stewardship programs around the region – creating a network of 14 Green Cities. Together they log over 115,000 volunteer hours at more than 1000 events each year.

- Improve the quality of life, connections to nature, and enhance forest benefits in cities by restoring our forested parks and natural areas
