Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Tapteal Greenway is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1995 with the mission of preserving the rustic character of the lower Yakima River, protecting native habitats and species through conservation, enhancing recreational opportunities throughout the corridor, providing outdoor education programs, and promoting public access to and understanding of these resources. The Yakima River and watershed is recognized as one of the most diverse, scenic, and biologically productive systems in the entire Pacific Northwest. The lower Yakima River corridor includes a complex mix of federal, state, county, municipal, and private ownerships as well as a variety of habitats ranging from arid shrub-steppe to lush emergent marshlands. The Tapteal Greenway operates through two primary channels -- development of public policy through work with local governments, and on-the-ground enhancement activities such as clean-ups, trail-building, and habitat restoration.
The Tapteal Greenway is a 100% volunteer organization driven by the Membership and the Board of Directors and funded solely by member dues, donations, and grants. The Greenway employs no staff and has no endowment.
