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!

Where: Next to 1806 NE 41st Circle, Vancouver. Follow the signs for parking.

What to Bring: Please wear long pants, close-toed shoes, sunscreen, and dress for the weather. Due to
new COVID guidelines, there will be no snacks or water on site. Please bring your own water bottle, snacks, gloves and mask. If you do not have a face covering or gloves, they will be provided on-site.

Face coverings are required for Washingtonians in public spaces, as mandated by a Washington State public health order. Watershed Alliance programs and services comply with this mandate and face coverings must be worn when participating in volunteer projects.
