Have some Good Green Fun on Green Seattle Day at Lincoln Park Nov. 18
Join Green Seattle Partnership on November 18, 2023 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM at West Seattle's Lincoln Park and help keep our forested parks healthy and green. No experience necessary. You can also find a community event at the map and calendar linked below. Questions? Please email us at email@example.com.
Volunteers need to come ready to help remove ivy, blackberries, do some planting, spread mulch and more.
The Green Seattle Partnership is a collaboration between City of Seattle, community groups and non-profits, businesses, schools, and thousands of volunteers working together to restore and actively maintain the City’s forested parklands.
Plant a forest and grow community! Help us create a healthier, happier, and greener Seattle by coming out to kick off planting Season on Green Seattle Day! This is our RESCHEDULED event after canceling on November 4 b/c of high winds. From creating wildlife habitat, to combating climate change, and providing a place for residents to recreate: having a hand in Green Seattle Day is one of the best ways to give back to your neighbors, parks, and your local forest. Join the fun with Lincoln Park Forest Stewards and be one of hundreds of volunteers across the city planting native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that will become the future forest of Seattle. All community members are welcome, and no experience is necessary! The event is family friendly and open to all ages.
- Open to the public
- All ages OK
- 30 out of 50 volunteers registered
What to Bring
Come dressed for the weather (rain or shine) in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes (rubber boots, hiking shoes or boots), long sleeves, long pants, warm layers and rain jacket. We'll have tools and gloves for you to use, as well as coffee, water, and a mid-morning snack. Help reduce waste by bringing your own refillable coffee mug/water bottle if you have one! SPECIAL PERFORMANCE: Local WSHS band, The Potholes are back by popular demand and will play their acoustic hearts out for volunteers as we plant.
