Become a Forest Steward
Be a hero for your favorite park! A core group of volunteer Forest Stewards are essential to the Green Everett Partnership’s success.

For more information or to RSVP, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org / 425-238-0065.
We are working on the following over the next 20 years:
1. 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.
2. Quality-of-life enhancement through the public’s use and enjoyment of an improved urban forest.
3. 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).
4. 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.
