Green Lake is the beloved lake in the heart of Seattle's Green Lake neighborhood that people from all over the city come to visit. On any given day, you can find runners running laps along its outer path, families with strollers, and fisherman fishing from the lake's edge.
Unfortunately, like many other Seattle parks, Green Lake has its share of invasive plant species that affect the scenic beauty and wildlife habitat around the lake.
Green Lake Stewards is a small but growing group of volunteers who are dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the natural areas around the lake by removing these invasive plant species.
We work in partnership with the Seattle Parks and Green Seattle Partnership, and since July 2015, we have hosted monthly work parties to remove the invasive plant species, such as Himalayan and evergreen blackberry and English ivy, from around the lake. Removing these invasive plants provides more growing space for native plants and creates a healthier ecosystem.
If you are interested in learning more about Green Lake Stewards or being notified of future work parties, visit our Join Us page. We are looking to grow our volunteer group, and this website, and we would appreciate your help!
