green City Days
Giving back to our city parks and green spaces
JOIN US FOR GREEN CITY DAYS 2022!
We’re celebrating 17 years of outstanding service and dedication to Washington’s forested parks, natural areas and communities.
Green City Partnerships restore and care for our urban parks and forests. They empower people to be agents of change in their neighborhoods, help conserve open space and enhance community resilience in the face of climate change. In turn, these spaces provide safe access to nature, clean air and a habitat for plants and animals to thrive.
Green City Days are the annual celebration and kick-off to fall planting season.
Whether you are a first-time volunteer or long-time steward, these events are a great way to get involved and support your local community.
Help us reach our goal for Green City Days:
- 1,400 participants 10,000 new healthy forest plants installed
- Support forest restoration and planting at more than 40 parks across the region
Support your community today
These unique partnerships bring together thousands of community volunteers, local governments, nonprofits, businesses and Forterra to create a sustainable network of natural areas throughout the region. We can’t do it without your help. Support your community and encourage a culture of volunteerism in your area
