Volunteer Planting & Invasive Removal — New Year 2024 Conservation Resolutions for Community Members!

There are bountiful opportunities to volunteer time and energy towards conserving habitat in both the Olympia and Portland/Vancouver areas! Planting native plant species is often done during the fall and winter seasons, when rain is abundant. Invasive plant removal is often a summer task while the weather is fair. In addition to planting and removal, consider plant salvages, beach clean-ups, rain garden maintenance, or lending a hand in a local community garden. Some of our favorite organizations that would love your efforts are listed below.
