Get involved today!
To do this great work we need everyone’s help. Join 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 in the future.

Private Group Work Parties
Is your company, nonprofit or community group looking to give back while team building? Restoration is a great way to build healthy relationships through a new experience while getting all the benefits of being in nature. Green Tukwila will provide tools, education and lead a work party for your group. Contact Olena.Perry@TukwilaWA.gov to learn more.
What to expect at a work party?
Work parties are fun, family-friendly, community-focused events nested in public parks or open spaces. Each work party will have the goal of removing invasive plants, planting natives, or mulching. No experience is necessary- training and tools will be provided at the site.
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, see wildlife, and explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest. They also keep the 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.
Where will we work?
Places shown in green on the map have some areas of forest, wetland, shoreline, or meadow in need of help. Sites that are in current restoration are 128th St Parcel, Codiga Park, Crystal Springs, Duwamish Hill Preserve, Shoreline Challenge, Tukwila Community Center, and Tukwila Park. Join us today!
