Discovery Park - Green Seattle Day at …11/03/2018

Host: Mountains to Sound Greenway


Have a hand in restoring Seattle's forests during our biggest party of the year, Green Seattle Day! We want you to dig in and to get out into your local neighborhood to help us kick off our planting season. Join Mountains to Sound Greenway at Discovery Park, and be one of hundreds of volunteers planting thousands of plants in parks throughout the Emerald City! All community members are welcome, and no experience is necessary! The event is family friendly and open to all ages. Volunteers will plant trees and other plants that will become the future forest of the park. We hope that you will all lend a hand in the neighborhoods you live in and to volunteer at the closest park near you!
