South Puget Sound Preserves (Washington state)
Across the South Sound and Olympia area CNLM hosts volunteer events and workshops on many of our preserves and at our Native Seed Farm and Nursery. Our South Sound staff welcomes volunteers to assist in a variety of tasks. On our preserves these include removing exotic invasive species (otherwise known as ‘weeds’), burning slash piles, monitoring native plants, collecting and spreading seeds, and participating in the annual Prairie Appreciation Day in May of each year. At our Native Seed Farm and Nursery our volunteers assist in wild seed collection, weeding raised beds, planting and seeding plugs for production harvesting seed, and participating in native plant workshops. If interested in helping us, please sign up for the volunteer mailing list to be notified about our weekly volunteer events or contact Justine Mischka, Volunteer Coordinator, to learn more about getting involved and public outreach and education opportunities.
