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. If you have any other questions during this time regarding volunteering, please reach out to info@greenseattle.org.

Kiwanis Memorial Preserve Park - MLK Day 2020 with ...01/20/2020

Host: United Way of King County

Activities

"Please join us in a habitat restoration project we believe helps to fulfill Martin Luther King's belief in service.
The forest in Kiwanis Ravine is maturing slowly, and older alders and maples die of old age while young conifers grow in their place. This is forest succession, an ecological process. Non-native plant species take advantage of gaps to invade, degrading the area's habitat value for the mammals, amphibians, and numerous species of birds which live there. We seek volunteers to help clear away weeds and spread new mulch, allowing native shrubs and trees to grow. No experience necessary-restore your own connection to nature! Office, school, and community organizations welcome, and individuals and families.
Through habitat restoration, community outreach, public education and ongoing advocacy, HHH works to ensure the great blue heron continues to thrive throughout the Puget Sound region. We do this because we believe the great blue heron - and other wildlife native to this area - contributes immeasurably to the unique quality of life we enjoy here in the Pacific Northwest."
