green shoreline partnership

The Green Shoreline Partnership is a collaborative effort between the City of Shoreline, Forterra, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, local businesses and the Shoreline community at large that builds upon existing forest restoration efforts to establish a city-wide community-based stewardship program supporting long-term restoration and maintenance of Shoreline’s parks and natural areas.
Green Snoqualmie Day Volunteers

Through this program, Green Shoreline will partner with local communities to recruit, train and support volunteer stewards to lead forest restoration projects in priority parks. The city aims to build a strong culture of community stewardship, leadership, and partnership to support a healthy urban forest 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 Shoreline Partnership has the goal to restore 240 acres of Shoreline’s forested parks and natural areas by 2039.The Partnership works to improve the quality of life, connections to nature, and enhance forest benefits for Shoreline’s residents; galvanize an informed and active community of stewards; and ensure long-term sustainable funding and community support. The program start-up process includes:

GreenShorelineOverviewMap
  • Assessment of forest health conditions of the identified 240 acres of parks and natural areas
  • Community outreach and engagement to guide project prioritization and implementation
  • Developing a Green Shoreline Partnership 20-year Guide for restoring forests and increasing the number tree canopy across the three cities
  • 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

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.
