Our Program

We lead community members in high quality service experiences in King County Parks with the goal of connection and engagement in the health of our parks. Together with our partners, we lead an average of 10,000 volunteers a year performing restoration, park improvement, and building and maintaining trails. We weave environmental education into every event, to make for a rewarding and productive day in the park. Visit our Volunteer Event Registration Portal to learn more and sign up for projects.

To inquire about a custom volunteer event for your school, group or business, please contact or at 206-477-7378.

At King County, our work is guided by our True North and Values. True North is what we aspire to: Making King County a welcoming community where every person can thrive.

The King County Parks Volunteer Program is focused on connecting community members to the land through education and environmental service.  The work we do takes place on the land of the Coast Salish people. We recognize the ancestors and current members of the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, the Snoqualmie Tribe, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, the Suquamish Tribe, the Tulalip Tribes, the Confederated Bands and Tribes of the Yakama Nation, and the Duwamish Tribal Community.

Coast Salish People continue to practice and develop their Native American culture, steward, and protect natural resources and share their rich history. If you are interested in learning more, I encourage you to see out information from the tribes themselves. This can look like many things, but an easy starting place is going to a tribe's webpage (linked above) to learn more.
