Sponsoring a Land Trust activity or event offers a highly visible way to express your company’s commitment to making our watershed a healthier; greener; better place to live, work and play. Sponsor a single event or the Land Trust’s activities for the whole year!
Take a look at the list of our regularly scheduled events (below) and the Nisqually Land Trust Event Sponsorship Packet (PDF).

Stewardship Volunteer Program | January thru December
Held throughout the Nisqually Watershed, stewardship-volunteer work parties typically last three hours and involve a range of land-restoration activities, such as planting native trees and controlling invasive weeds. The Land Trust provides training, tools and refreshments to support our hard-working volunteers.
- Weekly Wednesday Work Parties | January thru December
Every week, rain or shine
- Saturday Work Parties | October thru March
During the heart of planting season
- Volunteer Celebration | Summer
We celebrate the hard work and dedication of Land Trust volunteers
- Site Stewards and Volunteer Training Workshops | Variable
Site stewards are “super volunteers” who “adopt” a Land Trust property and monitor it over time. Training workshops provide volunteers with a basic understanding of the organization, its mission and the training and resources to help us steward the properties we protect
2017 Annual Meeting & Salmon Bake | September 17
The Land Trust meets annually with its supporters and friends to celebrate the past year’s accomplishments and present plans for the coming year over a Nisqually salmon dinner freshly prepared by the Nisqually Indian Tribe. This casual event is a “friendraiser” with ample time for socializing along the shore of the Nisqually Reach, on Puget Sound.
Our annual Conservation Dinner & Auction is our largest fundraiser and a highly anticipated community event that sells out every year. It features dinner, awards, engaging speakers and our renowned live and silent auctions offering unique excursions and Pacific Northwest art.
Summer Nature Walk Series | May thru August
One of the best ways to experience the wonders of our Nisqually Watershed is through fun, on-the-ground guided tours of wild and scenic places conserved by the Land Trust. Every summer and fall, our staff, special guests and volunteers lead ten weekend walks that are free and open to anyone interested in connecting with our protected lands. Sponsor one walk or the whole series!
Nisqually River Float Trip | July
The Nisqually Land Trust is uniquely positioned to offer two annual raft trips on a remote, seldom-seen stretch of the wild upper Nisqually River. These hugely popular day-long excursions are run by professional rafting guides and provide a rare opportunity to experience a thirteen-mile corridor of the Nisqually River that otherwise is virtually inaccessible.
