The Green Tukwila Partnership hosts the first-ever Green Tukwila Day on Saturday, Oct. 14th, to better the health of the city’s forests.

Community members are invited to help plant trees and shrubs from 9 a.m. to noon at Tukwila Park, 15460 65th Ave. S. The foliage will become the future forest of the park. All community members are welcome, and no experience is necessary. The event is family-friendly, and all tools and training will be provided.

The Green Tukwila Partnership is an initiative established last fall between the city of Tukwila, non-profits including Forterra, EarthCorps, and the Student Conservation Association (SCA) and the Tukwila community to care for public parks and natural open space throughout the city.

To register for Green Tukwila Day, go to tukwilawa.gov/departments/parks-and-recreation/community-events/. For more information email greentukwila@forterra.org or call 206-905-6924.
