Get Involved

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 until further notice. 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

In the mean time, we’re asking folks to make a volunteer pledge. This would mean signing up to volunteer at some future date, when it is safe to do so! These pledges will help us to illustrate the strength of our community, the dedication to our green spaces, and the motivation for a more sustainable future. This is particularly important in a time when funding for our forests may be limited. We appreciate your support, and can’t wait to get working with you some day down the road.

Volunteer with the Green Seattle Partnership!

We love volunteers! The people who each year donate thousands of hours to keeping Seattle’s forested parks healthy and green are the superheroes of the Green Seattle Partnership. From the folks dropping in at their very first work party to our most seasoned Forest Stewards, we could never accomplish so much without your tireless dedication and your infectious energy. To all of our current volunteers: thank you!

Volunteering with the Green Seattle Partnership is a great way to give back to your community, get outside, and improve the health of a local park. Whether you are looking for a fun way to spend a few hours, want to complete a service requirement or just love being outside, we invite you to join in our work restoring Seattle’s forest.
