Step out of your office and into a forested park! Your company can give back to the community by digging in and restoring Puget Sound area parks and urban forests.
EarthCorps offers a range of mission-driven volunteer experiences that advance your corporate philanthropic and team building priorities. Typical activities include removing non-native plants that are threatening the forest health; planting native trees and shrubs to reestablish a healthy ecosystem; and caring for plants by applying fresh mulch.

Frequently Asked Questions
EarthCorps volunteer events are typically held from 10:00 am – 2:00pm.
For private events, we can accommodate your scheduling needs. We find that events that are three to four hours long are the most fun and productive, allowing enough time to dive in to the project and create a visible impact. Events must begin after 9:00 am and end before 3:30 pm. Contact the Volunteer Team to schedule a private event.
EarthCorps works in dozens of parks and greenspaces in Seattle and Puget Sound cities. We will try our best to set up an event in a park convenient to your office.
EarthCorps can accommodate 20-200 volunteers at private events. If your group has fewer than 20 people, we recommend that you sign up for one of our public volunteer events. See our volunteer calendar for events open to the public.
For your safety and comfort, please wear long pants and durable shoes that can handle a little mud – work boots, hiking boots, or running shoes are all fine. We also recommend a long sleeve shirt to protect your arms from prickly blackberry bushes. Make sure to check the weather and bring appropriate layers and raingear. It’s a good idea to bring a backpack to keep all your possessions with you. We cannot provide clothing or lunch storage at the park.
EarthCorps asks for a contribution of $1,000 for an event up to 50 people, and $500 for each additional 25 people. If you would like to hold the event on company/private property, additional costs will apply.
We are happy to discuss costs and find a way to fit your budget.
