Wildflowers in bloom at our most active volunteer site, Glacial Heritage Preserve.


Help enhance the South Puget Sound prairies with the Center for Natural Lands Management and its team of dedicated volunteers. The prairies are a rare ecosystem that historically extended from South Tacoma all the way to the Chehalis River drainage. With the help of our volunteers we have restored much of the land back to prairie and oak woodland habitat, but we still have a lot to do!

Join us by helping in a variety of activities including: removing the invasive Scotch broom, cleaning and collecting native seeds, fixing and installing habitat boxes, burning Douglas fir tree remnants for oak release, monitoring Western bluebirds, planting native plants, and much more! You can learn about the dynamic restoration process and how to identify native prairie species while having fun.

We meet every Tuesday from 9:00am-3:00pm and every second Saturday of the month from 10:00am-3:00pm. No experience necessary!

Volunteer activities for each week will vary depending on the weather and project goals. To sign up for our weekly volunteer newsletter and stay up to date on volunteer activities visit our website ( or contact Sarah ( and she will add you to the list.
