Green Issaquah

What is Green Issaquah Partnership?

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

The Green Issaquah Partnership 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.

Where are we in developing the partnership program?

A forest health assessment is being conducted and will help to inform stewardship needs in our parks and open space system. Next steps will be to conduct a capacity assessment and to gather public input on the values, interests and priorities surrounding forested parks and open space.

A 20-year restoration plan will be developed along with a volunteer and Forest Steward program established for the long-term restoration and maintenance of the City’s parks and open spaces.

Are you interested in becoming a volunteer?

We need your help! Preserving and protecting forests in our parks will require an engaged community and volunteer workforce.

A Green Issaquah Partnership orientation meeting was held on Oct. 28, 2020. View the presentation materials.
