What is Green Issaquah Partnership?

The Green Issaquah Partnership is a collaborative effort between the City of Issaquah, community groups, nonprofits, schools, businesses, and hundreds of volunteers to restore and maintain our forested parks and open spaces. 

The Green Issaquah Partnership is guided by the 20-year Implementation Guide and will build upon existing city-wide community stewardship efforts and foster long-term support for restoration and maintenance of Issaquah’s parks and natural areas. The creation of the guide was funded with a grant from King Conservation District.

Volunteer with Green Issaquah

Come join friends and neighbors to learn about wildlife, native trees, invasive plants, and how this important stewardship work connects to forest health. All community members are welcome to volunteer to restore our City’s natural areas and engage in educational events to learn more about how our urban forest provides many benefits to the people and wildlife of Issaquah.

We are also available to host private volunteer stewardship events for groups. Contact Green Issaquah for more information and ways to get involved or complete an online interest form.

Forest Steward Program

Volunteer Forest Stewards lead their own restoration events at local parks bringing their diverse interests and skill to this important ongoing role.

Forest Stewards are provided training in the practice of ecological restoration and work closely with Green Issaquah staff to lead volunteer restoration work and volunteer events in a forested park or natural area identified as part of the Green Issaquah Partnership. Learn more about the role and responsibilities of a Forest Steward.

Interested in Becoming a Steward?

We encourage all that are interested to attend a Forest Steward Orientation. Orientation is free, open to the public, and is required to become a Forest Steward.
