This program covers multiple dates in 2024 and centers on parks and public spaces in the Tacoma area and the Puyallup watershed. The organizing goal of the program is connecting residents and visitors with unique and compact natural areas through scheduled stewardship opportunities. Activities and programs will educate volunteers on various aspects of the ecosystems we are working in and each of the dates will feature a presentation on the theme, regular water testing for contaminants and microplastics and a focused cleanup and/or restoration project.
Check back periodically as more events will be added throughout the year.
