Miller and Walker Creeks Stewardship
Ready to get dirty for a good cause? This page lists opportunities to help:
- Plant native trees and shrubs
- Pull out invasive non-native plants
- Clean up litter
Most volunteer projects welcome people of all ages. Younger people may need to be accompanied by an adult -- check with the event organizers.
Unless otherwise noted, no experience is necessary -- you'll learn on the job!
By volunteering, you will be helping to make the Miller and Walker Creek stream basins better for the people, fish, and wildlife that share it.
