green redmond partnership
Through this program, Green Redmond will partner with local communities to recruit, train and support volunteer stewards to lead forest restoration projects. The city aims to build a strong culture of community stewardship, leadership and partnership to support healthy urban forests for everyone. Each city’s program relies on a network of individuals, organizations, staff and volunteers. All partners are essential for the success of the project.
building the partnership
The Green Redmond Partnership is building a sustainable network of healthy urban greenspace for the benefit and enjoyment of current and future generations by bringing 1,035 acres of Redmond’s forested parkland into active management over the next 20 years. The program start-up process includes:
- Assessment of forest health conditions of the identified 1,035 acres of parks and natural areas
- Community outreach and engagement to guide project prioritization and implementation
- Developing a Green Redmond Partnership 20-year guide to share the forest health assessment results and establish goals and strategies for forest restoration and community engagement efforts
- Implementation of on the ground projects with a volunteer program to organize local community groups to plant trees, remove invasive plant species and meet restoration goals
Healthy forested parks and greenspaces have the power to strengthen neighborhoods, provide safe access to nature and offer numerous valuable benefits to the environment.

what are the benefits of a healthy forest?
Healthy forested parks and greenspaces have the power to strengthen neighborhoods, provide safe access to nature, offer numerous valuable environmental benefits, and play a critical role in supporting salmon and a healthy Puget Sound. Without a coordinated effort to restore and care for our forests, we are at risk of losing many benefits these forests and natural areas provide.
