Each year, EarthCorps, whose slogan is Local Restoration, Global Leadership, leads more than 10,000 volunteers in environmental restoration projects (and other services) in western Washington state.
They work with community organizations, schools, businesses, nonprofits and government agencies.
Volunteer events are held nearly every weekend. Volunteering is a great way to get to know your neighborhood parks, learn about environmental solutions, and meet interesting people.
EarthCorps brings together passionate and hardworking young adults from the US and countries around the world, for a yearlong leadership training program in Seattle, Washington. The Puget Sound is our classroom.
The young adults that join our corps learn leadership skills through working collaboratively, leading community volunteers, and executing technical restoration projects along shorelines, trails and in forests. Every day our corps is hard at work, improving the health of the Puget Sound region.
After the yearlong program, these young leaders leave EarthCorps with the tools and skills to tackle the pressing issues of our time – including, climate change, pollution, and ecological degradation – to create a better world for all of us.
