The Tukwila Green Partnership will host an orientation on Saturday, June 3.

The orientation is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon at Tukwila Community Center, 12424 42nd Ave. S.

Community members can learn more about the Green Tukwila Partnership and its effort to restore and care for 138 acres of Tukwila’s forests and greenspaces. There will also be opportunities to learn about caring for a local park or natural area by being trained as a Forest Steward.

The Green Tukwila Partnership is an initiative between the city of Tukwila, non-profits including Forterra, EarthCorps, and the Student Conservation Association (SCA) and the Tukwila community.

This building was built in 1969 as a service center for State Farm Insurance and offices for Andover Commercial Real Estate. The Andover Industrial Park was started in 1963 and is now seeing changes in usage with the recent development of the Hotel Interurban. Also the completion of the footbridge over the Green River giving access to the Sounder train station will have even more influence in Tukwila’s growth.
