Green Tacoma Partnership
Want to know more?
Formed in 2005, the Green Tacoma Partnership is a public-private venture between the City of Tacoma, Metro Parks Tacoma, Forterra, Citizens for a Healthy Bay, Pierce Conservation District, EarthCorps, businesses, other non-profits and community members. The Partnership works to engage the Tacoma community in the restoration and maintenance of viable, healthy green spaces by connecting stewardship groups, providing resources and trainings and organizing public outreach. For Tacoma’s residents, working together for a common cause in a local green space is a great way to build community. A community of connected, educated and engaged volunteers is the backbone of a strong, healthy and beautiful Green Tacoma.
Rain or shine, we will be out there! Unless there is lightning, high winds, or extreme weather, the volunteer event will still happen. We will have hot coffee and tea waiting for you, but make sure that you bring your raincoat and warm layers.
Why, yes! We would love to have you join us another time. Visit our partner links above by clicking on their logos to learn more about volunteer opportunities in the area.
