Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Looking for a group volunteer opportunity with your friends, family members, church, troop, classmates or employees? Let us know!
We can offer volunteer work parties at Adriana Hess Wetland Park in University Place, also home to the Adriana Hess Audubon Center and Tahoma Audubon Society, or the Thelma Gilmur Park in Fircrest.
The Adriana Hess Wetland Park is a 2-acre park that needs recurring basic maintenance like watering, weeding, trail work, and native plant installation. While you're here, you can walk the trails, discover how native plants can be used in your yard to attract wildlife, borrow some binoculars and watch birds or eat lunch on the deck at Morrison Pond.
Opportunities are available based on the schedule of our habitat restoration volunteer leaders. Please contact us 1-2 months in advance of when your group would like to volunteer.
Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
