Everett Parks and Forterra created the Green Everett Partnership to improve the health of Everett’s forested parks and natural areas. The program relies on volunteers to help restore these urban habitats. Join us!
Get involved - be a volunteer!
Spend time with the family, meet new people, and get outside into nature, all while helping to keep Everett’s parks healthy and green. No experience is necessary, and all tools are provided.

Any volunteer under 18 that will NOT be accompanied by supervising adult/parent/guardian must bring a youth release waiver form (PDF) signed by their parent/guardian to the event. If you do not have a printer, you can fill out the PDF online and send a copy before the event to firstname.lastname@example.org. We recommend any youth under the age of 15 be accompanied by an adult at the event.

Green Everett Field Guide
Our 20-Year Plan
Green Everett Partnership created a 20-Year Forest Management Plan (PDF) to restore 354 acres of forested parkland and guide the program’s vision, outcomes and goals.
We are working on the following over the next 20 years:
- Improvements in the diversity and health of the city’s urban forest - all 354 acres enrolled in restoration and actively managed during the life of the program.
- Quality-of-life enhancement through the public’s use and enjoyment of an improved urban forest.
- Positive economic effects and enhancement of the ecosystem services and social and physical health benefits that a healthy urban forest provides (clean air, clean water, stormwater retention, wildlife habitat, access to recreation and community building).
- A sustainable, robust, and active Forest Steward Program with volunteers who have a high ownership, stake in, and appreciation for the city’s urban forest
Everett is the first city in Snohomish County to become a Green City Partner and joins Kent, Kirkland, Seattle, Tacoma, Redmond, Tukwila and Puyallup.
