Join King County Parks in building healthy forests

We're doing our part in King County's effort to plant 1 Million Trees by 2020 to reduce carbon pollution and prepare for impact of climate change, one of the actions outlined in the 2015 Strategic Climate Action Plan.

This work also restores habitat for fish and wildlife and enhancing recreation opportunities for all of us. We would love your help!

Join Washington Trails Association in building backcountry trails
Here’s a chance to learn about how backcountry trails are constructed. Join King County Parks and the Washington Trails Association to learn how to retread a trail, build a turnpike, or solve drainage problems.
So give back to those trails that you love and join us this winter to rebuild and repair our backcountry trails!

To register, contact the Washington Trails Association on their website or by calling, 206-965-8561.

* Please note: WTA events require hiking to the site. WRA events are limited to 20 people but are typically 6-12 volunteers in size.
