Restoration

You and your fellow volunteers will participate in fun, hands-on conservation work led by staff from DNDA's Nature Team. Restoration work includes removing invasive plants, planting native species, and mulching new plantings, depending on the restoration progress in each site. DNDA-Nature Consortium is currently operating our volunteer events with additional COVID safety precautions. This includes limiting each event to a maximum of 5 participants and requiring all volunteers to pre-register a head of time.

What to bring to an event:

  • Please dress appropriately with long pants, warm and dry layers, closed-toed shoes and rain gear as needed.
  • Bring a face covering to the event. If you forget a face covering, the event lead will have extras for you.
  • Bring any water or snacks you might want during the volunteer event. For safety reasons, we will not be able to provide any refreshments.
  • If you have your own pair of work gloves you are encouraged to bring them. If you don’t that’s okay, we will have some for you.
  • Signed youth waiver form, if under 18

What we provide:

  • Tools
  • Gloves, if you are unable to bring your own

Mission Statement

Nature Consortium's mission is to connect people, arts, and nature.

Description

Nature Consortium inspires people in Puget Sound to become creative leaders through art and environmental action. We believe in experiential learning. Whether it's discovering a new art form or planting a tree for the first time, we invite you to roll up your sleeves and dig in.

Since 2003, we have been working to restore Seattle's biggest forest, the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Our Urban Forest Restoration Project is a long-term stewardship, education & advocacy project that offers hands-on experience in environmental action. Through this project, we host on-going volunteer work parties to plant native trees and understory and to clear invasive vegetation. Our Saturday work parties also feature live musicians to infuse the arts with our environmental work.

Our after-school and summer art classes offer a free and accessible way for youth to express their creativity. These classes serve youth in King County, primarily in low-income communities like Yesler Terrace and Rainier Vista. Offerings include photography, music, dance, organic gardening, nature-themed art, urban art, ceramics, and more.

Every year, as a culmination of our work, Nature Consortium hosts the Arts in Nature Festival in West Seattle to celebrate the outdoors and showcase local artists and performers. The festival encompasses music, dance, theatre, fire performances, wandering performers, a museum of sound and hands-on art & naturalist activities.
