Curious about Seattle’s Forested Parklands?


Seattle Parks Department recently launched its 10 Year Strategic Plan Update of the Green Seattle Partnership.  The purpose of the update is to evaluate the state of Seattle’s forested park lands since GSP began in 2005 and update the plan so we can continue to achieve GSP’s three main goals:


1.       Restore all 2,500 acres of Seattle forested parklands by 2025.


2.       Establish financial and volunteer resources to provide long term maintenance and ensure the sustainability of forested parklands.


3.       Galvanize an informed, involved, and active community around forest restoration and stewardship.


Green Seattle Partnership is over half way through the predicted 20 years it takes to restore all of Seattle’s forested parklands.  This provided an opportunity to check in how well the program was performing and make any adjustments to trajectory of programing.  Working closely with GSP and Seattle Parks Staff a document was created to outline how the program has evolved since inception, celebrate its successes and create a vision for reaching 2025 and beyond.  The 2017 Strategic Plan Update identifies areas for opportunity, outlines how the vision and goal will be achieved, and establishes community support for our forested parklands beyond 2025.
