What we do
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.
- We want to acknowledge that the work we do takes place on the occupied traditional land of the Coast Salish People. They have cared for this land for thousands of years so we recognize we are not the first to help as stewards. (To find out more about Native Land, check out this interactive map: )
- To inquire about a custom volunteer event for your school, group or business, please contact Volunteer Program Manager Lina Rose (linked to email), 206.477.6101
