A larger, healthier urban forest begins with you.
Grand Rapids Urban Forest Project
The Grand Rapids Urban Forest Project is a partnership between the Friends of Grand Rapids Parks and the City of Grand Rapids.
Our goal is to maximize the tree canopy in all parts of the city, making sure it’s healthy, safe, protected and well maintained so everyone in Grand Rapids can experience the cultural, social, economic, public health, and environmental benefits of trees.
Come on in and explore!
There are lots of ways to start your adventure:
- Learn about urban forest issues and ways to enhance, expand, or protect the forest in your community
- Explore our crowd-sourced tree map and upload trees from your neighborhood
- Find volunteer, education, and outreach opportunities for everyone who lives in the Grand Rapids urban forest
Enhancing parks and public spaces in Grand Rapids.
Founded in 2008, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks is an independent, citizen-driven nonprofit with a mission to protect, enhance, and expand parks and public spaces in Michigan’s second largest city. We work to mobilize volunteers, generate resources and raise awareness about issues that impact our urban parks and natural systems.
