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. 


We acknowledge that the work we do takes place on the occupied and traditional land of the Coast Salish-speaking people. We recognize the ancestors and current members of the Duwamish Tribal Community, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, the Snoqualmie Tribe, the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, the Suquamish Tribe, the Tulalip Tribes, and the Confederated Bands and Tribes of the Yakama Nation.
These Tribes claim traditional lands in King County. They cared for this land for thousands of years and continue to care for it today. Not only do we recognize the ongoing cultural and geographical legacy of the tribes and their people, but we acknowledge their history and presence here in this region today.
