Bradley Lake Work Party
ORGANIZATION: Pierce Conservation District
Please visit the new page to apply.
Volunteer with us by spending 3 hours at Bradley Lake Park in Puyallup. Activities include installing new burlap and mulch to remove invasive Himalayan blackberry. 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 Himalayan blackberry through installing new layers of mulch and burlap.
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!
Youth under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian
