EarthCorps in Tacoma!
EarthCorps and the City of Tacoma invite community members to help improve the health of our urban forests and wetlands!
Volunteer with EarthCorps in Tacoma’s wetlands and urban forests!
These natural areas provide a number of benefits to Tacoma residents: They filter our air, absorb rainwater, prevent dirty stormwater runoff from polluting the Puget Sound, and provide a home for native birds and animals. They also provide a place where people can get out and enjoy the physical and psychological benefits of nature in an otherwise urban environment.
Individuals, students, corporate or community groups are all welcome to come out and lend a hand improving these places!

Adopt a Site
Become a Habitat Steward! EarthCorps relies on committed volunteers to help maintain the City of Tacoma’s healthy forests and wetlands.
Habitat Stewards are volunteers who want to actively care for Tacoma’s urban forests and wetlands and make a deeper commitment to a site. Habitat Stewards receive training from EarthCorps staff members so they feel confident performing ecological restoration and leading other community volunteers.
