Volunteer with us by spending 3 hours at Whittier Park in Fircrest. Activities include caring for existing plantings and removing invasive species such as Herb robert. This work supports water quality, our local wildlife, and pollinators. Exact meeting location will be provided after signing up.

What will volunteers be doing at the event?

While the exact tasks at hand vary, our projects focus on improving the open spaces, forests, and parks in our local cities. Healthy ecosystems and thriving forests are vital to our community because they absorb and naturally filter rain water, produce clean oxygen, provide living spaces for wildlife, and create a place for people to connect with the outdoors.

In order to create healthy forests and riparian zones, the work can include:

  • Removing invasive species of plants
    1. Herb Robert
  • Caring for existing and previous plantings

For your safety and comfort please bring:

  • Clothing that can get dirty
  • Long pants and sleeves
  • Sturdy shoes (closed toed shoes required, no sandals or flats)
  • Rain gear and warm layers (the event will happen rain or shine)
  • Full water bottle!

Description

The Pierce Conservation District works with the community to improve water quality, promote sustainable agriculture, create thriving habitat, and build a just and healthy food system for all, through education, community engagement, and financial and technical assistance. Our district’s roots run deep in our community. Created in 1949 as part of a national response to the ecological disaster of the 1930s known as the Dust Bowl, we have worked for over 65-years to help local farmers, cities, and citizens address numerous sustainability challenges. Conserving our natural resources for future generations gets more difficult with each year, making the work of Pierce Conservation District more important than ever.
