Your 2013 resolution to volunteer starts here!

Work Party Volunteers

We can help with that New Year resolution
Some of us plan for our New Year resolutions well in advance as we catalog our achievements for the year and gear up to do better or go bigger in the year ahead. Then, there’s the rest of us who wait until January 2, to scribble a list on a sticky note and forget where we put it two days later. Either way, if hands-on volunteer work made it onto your list; the kind that gets a little dirt under your nails, then you’ve come to the right place. Not only can you cross this resolution off your list by joining one of our upcoming volunteer work parties, but you can also help us improve our stream corridors for salmon, including the threatened Chinook salmon. That’s like a bonus resolution!

Come join us on a Saturday and make a difference by spending a day planting trees. These native trees and shrubs will enhance the natural stream corridor and wetlands while also improving habitat for wildlife. Why? Native plants provide shade and keep the water cool. Their roots hold the banks in place and control runoff and erosion which keep water cleaner. It’s good for the salmon and it’s good for you!
