Stewardship Work Parties

Stewardship Work Parties are held every Wednesday year-round and 2-3 Saturdays per month between October and May. Check the calendar for upcoming events!

Volunteering is a fun way to see the properties, exercise, and improve wildlife habitat around the Nisqually River Watershed. Here are some of the activities you’ll be involved in:

  • Plantings – plant native trees and shrubs to restore or rehabilitate disturbed areas (seasonal projects, fall through early spring).
  • Plant Maintenance – mulch around new native trees and shrubs and help us remove plant protectors from established seedlings.
  • Weed control – Cut or pull weeds (English Ivy, Scotch Broom, Himalayan Blackberry, etc.), typically as part of a work party.
