EarthCorps develops leaders to strengthen community and restore the health of our environment.
EarthCorps is an independent nonprofit supported by donors and volunteers. Each year we work with over 10,000 volunteers at hundreds of events around the region to improve our forests, shorelines and salmon streams. We believe that involving the community through hands on work is the best way to keep our parks healthy.
The Work We Do:
While the exact tasks at hand vary, our projects focus on improving the forests and parks in our local cities. Healthy and thriving forests are vital to our community because they absorb and naturally filter rain water, absorb toxins in the air, produce clean oxygen, provide living spaces for wildlife, and they create a place for people to connect with the outdoors.
In order to help create healthy forests, we focus on removing aggressive weeds (like English Ivy or Himalayan Blackberry), maintaining areas where these weeds have been removed, and planting trees and shrubs during the rainy season.
