Stewardship

Project Info

Project Description

Stewardship [stoo-erd-ship, styoo-]: the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving.

The Watershed Alliance is dedicated to protecting and improving our green spaces. Tree plantings, invasive plant removals and litter clean-ups are a few ways we give back to the environment.

There are multiple ways you too can be a steward of the land! Join us for one of our annual Stewardship events!

Group Events

We arrange private stewardship events for community groups and businesses of any size who want to volunteer their time through a tree planting or invasive plant removal along our local creeks or parks. Organizations or companies who have employee service days are invited to give back with the Watershed Alliance!

VolunTOUR is a volunteer program that focuses on education and exploration. The City of Vancouver and Clark County has partnered with Watershed Alliance to offer volunteers a tree planting opportunity along a portion of Burnt Bridge Creek. VolunTOUR is a great opportunity for families, teens, and volunteers of all ages!

Historically, Burnt Bridge Creek has been known for its polluted waters and invasive plant species that run alongside it. However, over the last few decades a lot of work has been done to restore and protect the creek. We need your help to continue the restoration work!

In partnership with Clark County Green Business and the City of Vancouver Urban Forestry Program, we invite you to join us for a native tree planting event! Planting native trees and shrubs are a great way to help improve the water quality and habitat of this great resource in our community. There will be instructions about how to plant before we begin.

Green Businesses are already setting the trend to enhance our community. This event will be an opportunity to build connections with those green businesses, learn about trees and watershed health, and support the community.
