Join Us for Campfire Chat
Join EarthCorps and friends for Campfire Chat – A Discussion on Habitat on Tuesday, November 28 at 6 PM (PST). EarthCorps’ Project Manager Anna Jowell will welcome Crew Members Kristina and Raquel as they dive deep into the “behind-the-scenes” of what it takes to prioritize various habitats throughout the Puget Sound region and beyond. As one of EarthCorps’ central pillars, they’ll discuss how habitat relates to our mission of cultivating leaders and community partnerships to advance environmental justice, what sort of training the corps receives, and answer all your habitat-related questions!
Don’t miss out on this quarter’s Campfire Chat, which includes an exclusive sneak peek of our first-ever Global Learning Summit, which will occur virtually on December 5, 6, and 7.

Mill Creek Canyon
In this series, EarthCorps’ Field Operations Manager Whitney and EarthCorps’ Project Manager Mahleah welcomed folks who have supported the ongoing Mill Creek Canyon Project.
Whitney shares: “The Canyon is a fantastic place with rich ecology. When you get far enough into the Canyon, you could close your eyes and not know that you are in the middle of a very dense urban landscape. There are many big plans for the Mill Creek Canyon that go beyond trail work, but our piece, for now, focuses on trail construction and design.”
