The Green Tukwila Partnership

The City of Tukwila joined the Green Cities Partnership, a collaboration of Puget Sound cities working to steward natural open spaces in 2017. Tukwila’s program is called the Green Tukwila Partnership. Together with Forterra, EarthCorps, Duwamish Alive Coalition, Partner in Employment, the Service Board, Dirt Corps, King County Parks, and the Tukwila community, Green Tukwila Partnership will care for public parks and natural open spaces across the city. Over the next 20 years, the partnership will work to restore and maintain 138 acres of Tukwila’s urban forest. 

Dig into Restoration Work Parties

What can I expect at a work party? Work parties are fun, family-friendly, community-focused events in public parks or open spaces.   Each work party will have the goal of removing invasive plants, planting native plants, or mulching.   No experience is necessary. Training and tools will be provided at the site; all identities are welcome.  Events are rain or shine; any cancelations will be emailed by the morning of the event by 8:00 am.

Why is this work important? Healthy parks and natural open spaces are a gift to our city and everyone. They provide places where people can connect with nature, see wildlife, and explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest. They also clean the air and waterways, 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 ensure we have a healthy and green Tukwila today, tomorrow, and into the future.
