Redmond, WA – The Green Redmond Partnership between the City of Redmond, Forterra, and dedicated volunteers has been working since 2009 to bring over 1000 acres of forested parkland into active management through the removal of non-native, invasive plants and planting native trees and shrubs.

On Saturday, October 27, you can join other volunteers for a fun morning of restoration during Green Redmond Day. Planting events will be held at numerous park sites from 9:00 am to Noon. Sign up at Advanced registration is strongly encouraged as some sites will fill up.

Green Cities throughout the region will be holding planting events in October and November. Redmond is one partner in a larger, regional effort that includes the cities of Everett, Kent, Kirkland, Seattle, Snoqualmie, Puyallup, Tacoma, and Tukwila to restore and maintain over 9,000 acres of publicly-owned urban natural areas and forests.

"The Green Redmond Partnership, through dedicated volunteers, is making a difference in the restoration efforts of forested parkland. Its tree planting programs create a positive impact on our current community and will continue providing benefits for future generations," said Mayor John Marchionne.

Everyone is encouraged to participate. No experience is necessary and tools will be provided along with instructions on how to plant trees to ensure a long and healthy life. Green Redmond Day is an excellent learning experience for kids and aspiring gardeners alike. Please Join In.
