Thanks for your interest in volunteering with GSP! However, as Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Green Seattle Partnership work to do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 to the most vulnerable individuals, we are cancelling volunteer programs starting March 13 and going through April 13. Please continue to check back here for updated information and opportunities to get involved as soon as we are cleared to restart volunteer events.

Genesee Park and Playfield - North Genesee Forest Restoration01/20/2020


Start the new year outside to honor Dr. King's legacy by joining with friends and neighbors to restore the forest in our neighborhood. We'll be pulling ivy, digging invasive blackberry, and planting a few young trees and ferns. Kids of all ages are invited to work and play in the forest for a few hours.

Open to the public

All ages OK

30 out of 20 volunteers registered.

What to Bring

Please bring a water bottle and re-useable coffee cup. Dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes and long sleeves to protect against blackberry thorns.

Where to Meet

Meet near the picnic pavilion on the meadow side of the park, north of Genesee St., towards Lake Washington. Look for the blue tent. (if you are by the soccer fields you are in the wrong part of the park!)

Where to Park

You can park in the gravel lot off Genesee St. near the Parks Maintenance Bldg or along 43rd Ave. If traveling by bus, the 50 is your best option.
