Give Back to the Community
How does your organization envision a greener tomorrow? Are you looking for an opportunity to give back to your community? Is your team searching for a meaningful team-building opportunity?
Partner with EarthCorps to restore Puget Sound area parks and urban forests.
EarthCorps offers a range of mission-driven volunteer experiences and sponsorship opportunities that advance your corporate philanthropic and team–building priorities.
We are building an equitable future.
EarthCorps is dedicated to supporting the communities most impacted by environmental degradation. We believe in the power of people to restore ecosystems, protect the environment, increase access to nature, and address climate change.
However, we can’t do it alone.
Every year more than 1,000 youth, business leaders, and community members join us as we work to restore and sustain the region’s natural ecosystems and green spaces for future generations to enjoy.
By partnering with EarthCorps, you are investing in a healthy and sustainable world by providing the next generation of youth with the knowledge, skills, and experience to deal with pressing global environmental challenges. Most importantly, your partnership will help to improve the well-being of many BIPOC communities in the region by restoring natural habitats.

Employee Volunteer Events
EarthCorps offers private volunteer events for corporate groups of up to 30 people. Typical activities are seasonal, including removing non-native plants that are threatening the forest’s health; planting native trees and shrubs to re-establish a healthy ecosystem, and caring for plants by applying fresh mulch.
Engage in local restoration techniques while your team learns about the history of the land and the surrounding communities through their interactions with community stewards, tribes, and professionals.
Private events are typically held on weekdays or weekends and last approximately three hours between 9:00 am and 3:30 pm. Scroll down to learn more!
Supporting Community Events
EarthCorps offers a variety of community engagement, education, and fundraising events throughout the year. Corporate partners can play a key role in their success.
Promote Community Volunteering! EarthCorps offers public volunteer events for local communities. By sponsoring an event, your organization is providing opportunities for underserved communities to own their local restoration efforts.
Other Ways to Get Involved
EarthCorps is an independent non-profit that depends on the support of our community and volunteers. We greatly appreciate donations and sponsorships from our corporate partners. We love finding creative ways to support each other’s goals.
This may look like in-kind donations for operations, employee gift matching through platforms like Benevity, tabling at your workplace event, and more!
EarthCorps also offers educational opportunities for businesses. These include plant ID hikes, informational sessions, and beach clean-ups.
EarthCorps is open to creative new ideas for meaningful partnerships. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the conversation started.
“Being a sponsor of Revive has created a space for our employees to connect outside of the work walls. Having an evening to be inspired together about the work EarthCorps is doing to restore PNW habitats and building leaders to address our world’s climate issues is so invigorating.”
— Shanon Tysland, CEO of Experience Momentum.

Corporate Volunteer Packages
EarthCorps has a package for every goal and budget. The higher tiers include all benefits of lower tiers as your organization deepens its commitment to this work.
Seed (Welcome to Restoration!)
This tier is great for organizations getting involved in restoration for the first time. It has everything you need for a volunteer event for up to 30 people. This includes tools, training, staff support and safety, and everything behind the scenes.
Sapling (Engage the Community!)
The Sapling tier is for organizations invested in transforming the Puget Sound. Saplings will pay it forward by “adopting” a public volunteer event for the local community. Employees and their families are also welcome to attend these special events.
Cedar (Become a visionary of local restoration and community engagement)
Western Red Cedars play a crucial role in the Pacific Northwest, serving as a fundamental resource for communities since time in memorial. They offer shelter, sustenance, clothing, and so much more. Similarly, your company plays a crucial role in our journey towards building a more equitable world.
The Cedar package is designed for visionary organizations committed to a greener tomorrow and ready to make that dream a reality.

What should the volunteers wear?
For your safety and comfort, please wear clothes that cover your legs 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 or sun protection. 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.
