Connect with nature Saturday, October 13th!

10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Tacoma’s wetlands, parks and open spaces need your help! These natural resources provide people with clean air, clean water, and access to nature. Keeping them healthy is a community effort! Join hundreds of volunteers this fall as we work to keep Tacoma green by volunteering at one of ten different event sites around the city. Volunteers will be pulling invasive weeds, removing litter, and planting and mulching native shrubs and trees.

It’s easy to volunteer!
