Other Ways to Get Involved:
EarthCorps enables community members of all ages to give back to their community by helping keep city parks and forests healthy. You bring a positive attitude, your lunch, and clothes that can get dirty, and EarthCorps will provide the rest!
ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
EarthCorps staff and volunteer leaders will teach you everything you need to know about the work including tool safety, forest health, and the importance of the specific tasks you will be doing.
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
While the exact tasks at hand vary, their projects focus on improving the forests and parks in our local cities. Healthy forests are vital to our community because they filter rain water, purify the air, provide living spaces for wildlife, and give people a place to connect with the outdoors.
