Volunteer opportunity posted by: Nature Consortium
Posted on: February 26, 2013
Located in West Seattle near the Duwamish River, the West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, stretching from West Seattle to Burien. Nature Consortium hosts volunteer work parties year round several times per week. Currently we are working Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10am-2pm in the West Duwamish Greenbelt located in West Seattle. Each work party begins with a short informal forest ecology workshop, and we spend the remainder of the time performing various restoration activities, including planting native trees and shrubs, removing invasive species, mulching previously-planted areas, and more. Musicians perform for volunteers at many of our restoration work parties.
We work rain or shine. Please dress appropriately with long pants, warm and dry layers, closed toed shoes and rain gear as needed. We provide gloves, tools, a light granola bar snack (feel free to bring a lunch) and a jug of water. Please bring a refillable water bottle.
