Stewardship Programs


The City offers three Stewardship Programs that allow citizens with a passion for environment restoration an opportunity to serve in their community by leading volunteer projects.

Plant Stewards

After completing the Washington Native Plant Society's Stewardship Program, Plant Stewards give back to their community by planning and organization restoration in our parks. 

Stormwater stewards

A new program for this year, the Stormwater Stewards are working to turn stormwater ponds into more ecologically friendly ponds by planting native trees and shrubs that benefit water quality and provide habitat for Sammamish wildlife. Interested in adopting a stormwater pond? Here is how: Sammamish Adopt-a-Stormwater Pond. 

Trail Stewards

After gaining trail building skills and experience working with Washington Trails Association (WTA), Trail Stewards lead trail work parties in Sammamish parks and preserves.  To volunteer with WTA, visit their volunteer event calendar.
