Mission Statement

EarthCorps's mission is to create a global community through local environmental service.

Description

About EarthCorps:

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.

Great experience. Fun staff and friendly group of people. Felt good helping out and we made a lot of progress! Plus the weather was refreshing and it just felt fantastic to be out in nature like that. Plus it was educational.

Had a great time helping in restoration efforts at Brooklake Blueberry Farm. EarthCorps is an awesome non-profit organization to volunteer with, I plan to volunteer again and definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to make a positive difference in their community.

The people from EarthCorps come from all over the world because of their devotion to the environment. My group leader was from Kazakhstan, and she explained everything you would ever need to know about removing invasive plants. It made 4 hours fly so fast!

Its a great way to feel like you have help make our environment a better place to live, it gives you a chance to go outside and do something, and you meet new people.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
