Planting Community - Green Seattle Day SUCCESS!

Can’t say enough good things about the amazing group of volunteers who came out today in the rain to help over 300 native trees and plants find their forever homes. Thank you for your efforts to keep our urban forest healthy! For some, this is the first time they've had an opportunity to put a tree in the ground and it is often a joyous and powerful occasion! To add to the fun, we often suggest that volunteers name their trees. Here's some notable names from Saturday: Tundra, Pete, Sepitroth, November, Dragon, Hope. 💚🌲🌳🌿

READY FOR GREEN SEATTLE DAY!



Over 300 trees and plants are placed and ready for planting by over 30 wonderful volunteers at Lincoln Park! If you're in the park tomorrow, stop by and thank them for their efforts to keep our urban forests healthy! We'll be in the forest, east of the soccer fields, just north of the north parking lot.

Getting it DONE! A little THANK YOU to our Volunteers!


On October 6, members of St. Joseph’s (Capitol Hill) made the trip to West Seattle and spent many hours making a difference in some pretty important spots in our Park. We can’t thank them enough for pulling and digging ivy and blackberry in our future Green Seattle Day planting site. A really great group and we’re so happy they chose us to spend some of their many hours out helping Seattle communities. Thanks and please join us ANYTIME!

AND… many thanks and appreciation for all of the other volunteers who join us (regulars and drop-ins alike!) Our park is a thing of beauty and wouldn’t be so, without YOU!
