Your forest needs you! Join the Green Seattle Partnership on Saturday, November 8th, as we kick off planting season and celebrate Seattle’s urban forest and all it does for us with a day of volunteerism in 21 parks throughout the City. The 9th Annual Green Seattle Day is a perfect time to roll up your sleeves and have a lasting impact on your community. Our biggest event of the year, Green Seattle Day is a great chance for first-time and long-time volunteers to help grow the forest in their own city by planting trees and other plants in city parks.

Have you heard of the International Coastal Cleanup? It happens every year in September and is the largest global volunteer day in service to our lakes, oceans, and rivers. Each year, approximately 600,000 people worldwide dedicate time to cleaning up their local waterways. The catch is that they record every single piece of trash collected! The results are then sent to the Ocean Conservancy and published into an annual report to give us an idea of exactly what is floating around in our oceans (hint: the most prevalent item is small, plastic, and brown and white in color).
