Green Tukwila Partnership

A member of the Green Cities Network

The City of Tukwila joined the Green Cities Partnership, a regional collaboration of cities working to steward natural open spaces in 2017. Tukwila’s program and initiative are called “Green Tukwila.”   Together with Forterra, EarthCorps, Duwamish Alive Coalition, Dirt Corps, King County Parks, 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.

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.

2021 Volunteer Restoration & Litter Clean-up Work Parties

Volunteer work parties have limited numbers to ensure the safety of stewards, volunteers, and staff. Work parties are limited to 20 individuals, all participants must sign up online and will be sent confirmation and safety protocols the week before the work party.


Green Tukwila’s volunteer program is closed for the next 3 weeks for public events due to the raise in COVID-19 cases via the Omnicorn variant. The hope is to open volunteer programming at the end of January, with a new rollout of protocols.  

Events are being planned for the 2022 season, the best way to get involved is to join the quarterly email list, Click here

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 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, Fort Dent, Riverton Park, Shoreline Challenge, Tukwila Community Center, and Tukwila Park.   Join us today!
