Check out just how much progress we made in 2016 towards achieving our goal of restoring 2,500 acres of Seattle’s forested parklands by 2025. Thank you to everyone who came out to volunteer with us in 2016, and we can’t wait to see these numbers grow in the year ahead!

Nicole Marcotte
Green Cities Project Coordinator, Forterra Nicole comes to us from the Northeast, where she graduated with a degree in Environmental Studies from St. Michael’s College in Vermont. She made the jump to Seattle to serve as a 2014 AmeriCorps member with EarthCorps. After a year of grubbing immense amounts of blackberry, spraying knotweed along the Cedar River, maintaining trails in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and planting plenty of native species, she realized that her true passions lie in habitat conservation and restoration. This newfound passion led her Forterra, where she helps with Green Seattle community engagement. If she’s not out frolicking through alpine meadows in her free time, you can find her in Washington Park Arboretum where she likes to create botanical-artwork from fallen flowers and foliage.
