Become A Forest Steward

20-ForestSteward1_SCAOur neighborhood forests need a little loving care from us. In order to re-establish and care for 2,500 acres of healthy forested parkland, thousands of people take part in forest restoration work every year. Do you want to lead your own restoration project in a park you choose, get to know your neighbors, and clean up our greenspaces? Then you may be ready to take your GSP volunteer commitment to the next level.

Green Seattle Forest Stewards lead restoration and educate others about the challenges facing our forests. As we strive towards greater equity in our city, we encourage a diverse group of volunteers to take the lead in their own communities.21-ForestSteward2_LarisaLumba We ultimately to want to galvanize an informed, involved, and active community of forest stewardship across the entire city!

Volunteers take significant steps to ensure that forests remain a vibrant presence in our city. With over 800,000 volunteer hours contributed, 169,000 trees planted, and 167 active forest stewards invested in 80 parks citywide, we have reversed the decline of Seattle’s forested parks. Together we can preserve the splendor of our forests well into the future.
