Native Plants for Green Kirkland Day

Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

On November 14th, 2015, the Green Kirkland Partnership hosted its first ever Green Kirkland Day!

Green Kirkland Day is a day to celebrate the Partnership’s accomplishments, volunteers’ hard work throughout the year and to plant hundreds of native plants in several of Kirkland’s natural area parks. The main site for the very first Green Kirkland Day was Crestwoods Park.

The Green Kirkland Partnership sought donations to help cover the cost of native trees, shrubs and groundcover like Woods’ Rose, Salmonberry, and Sword Fern. The estimated total cost of all the plants is $4,000. KPCF contributed $1,500 and raised an additional $2,500 towards this project, enabling the purchase of enough plants to fill areas recently cleared of ivy and blackberry. Over time, these new plants have grown and matured into a healthy forest, cared for by ongoing volunteer efforts.  They will supply wildlife with food and habitat and local residents with clean air and natural areas to enjoy for years to come.
