A network of citizens, landowners, conservation groups and public agencies is working together to safeguard and restore the South Sound prairies. As a volunteer, you can:
- help remove invasive species
- establish native plants
- provide nesting sites for prairie birds
- be a nursery steward
- help with graphic design and editing
- write website/media articles
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities:
Every Tuesday volunteers meet with staff from the Center for Natural Lands Management to conduct restoration work on one of the prairies in the South Sound. The work varies from pulling Scotch Broom to planting native species to conifer control. Each week on the prairies brings a new restoration activity. Learn to clean seeds or monitor prairie species. Please join us! For more information, contact us at email@example.com.
Work parties are held every second Saturday of each month. Occasional bonfires and potlucks have been known to happen. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Schools and Groups
Restoration work is also a great team building activity! Bring your school or civic group out to the prairies and enjoy the outdoors together while you improve the environment.
