While the exact tasks can vary, our projects focus on improving the forests and parks of Seattle. In order to help create healthy forests, the work can include: Removing aggressive weeds (like English Ivy or Himalayan Blackberry) Maintaining areas where these weeds have been removed (weeding or spreading mulch) Planting trees and shrubs during the rainy season (often ~Oct.-Feb.)
EarthCorps supplies gloves, tools, water and snack bars. They will teach you everything you need to know about tool use, safety, forest health, and the importance of the work you will be doing. No experience necessary, just come ready to learn something new! Be sure to sign in at registration when you arrive!
