Join PCD from 9 AM - 12 PM on Saturday, June 22nd, and help us continue important restoration work at South Prairie Creek Preserve. Thousands of native trees and shrubs were installed during the planting season and now is the time to spread moisture-retaining mulch to prepare them for the dry summer months.


What can volunteers expect at the event?

  • While the exact duties may vary, volunteers will spread mulch around new plants to promote soil moisture retention during the summer and may continue efforts to remove invasive vegetation.
  • Volunteers can expect uneven terrain, wet and/or muddy ground.
  • A port-a-potty will be available on site.
  • Parking is limited. Please carpool with people in your party.
What to bring to the event:
  • Please dress for the weather (we recommend wearing layers).
  • Closed-toe, sturdy shoes or boots (no flats or sandals; water-resistant is recommended).
  • Work gloves, if desired (PCD will have some available to borrow)
  • A 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.
