Green Tukwila Partnership

A member of the Green Cities Network

The City of Tukwila has joined the Green Cities Partnership, a regional collaboration of cities working to steward natural open spaces. Tukwila’s program and initiative is called “Green Tukwila.”  Together with Forerra, EarthCorps, the Student Conservation Association, Duwamish Alive Coalition and the Tukwila community Green Tukwila will care for public parks and natural open spaces across the city. Throughout the next 20 years the partnership will work to restore and maintain 138 acres of Tukwila’s urban forest.

Why do this?

Healthy parks and natural open spaces are a gift to our city and everyone in it. They provide places where people can connect with nature close to home, and provide a variety of health benefits that natural spaces bring.  They also keep our air and waterways clean, buffer noise, provide habitat for local wildlife, and absorb carbon to fight against climate change. These valuable places can’t take care of themselves in an urban environment, they need our help to make sure we have a healthy and green Tukwila-today, tomorrow, and into the future.

Get involved today!

To do this great work we need everyone’s help. Join your friends, neighbors and bring your families outside to learn about trees, shrubs, invasive plants, how to use tools and much more. Work parties are being planned for community members and businesses to care for precious urban forests and to ensure healthy, safe, and beautiful public spaces to enjoy into the future.

What to expect at a work party?

Work parties are fun, family friendly and community focused events nested in public parks or open spaces.  Each work party will have a goal of removing invasive plants, planting natives or mulching.  No experience is necessary- training and tools will be provided at the site.

Where will we work?

Places shown in green on the map have some areas of forest, wetland, shoreline, or meadow in need of help. Over the next 20 years, the Green Tukwila Partnership will work to restore and care for these places so that they can thrive, for years to come.
