The following is a press release from EarthCorps.

Whether it’s the physical work, the passion for healthy and balanced ecosystems, the need to give back or the desire to learn and share your knowledge with others, becoming a Puget Sound Steward might be the right step for you.

EarthCorps has been working with the Green Tukwila Partnership to restore sites along the Duwamish River for the past several years through the Puget Sound Steward program.

Puget Sound Stewards improve and sustain natural areas along estuaries, rivers and beaches throughout the Puget Sound Region, including Codiga Park and the Tukwila Community Center.

These volunteers work as a team to help EarthCorps keep the Duwamish shoreline healthy, run restoration events, adapt management plans, and educate the community.

EarthCorps provides the education and resources to support stewards in their role and stewards commit to volunteer 25 hours throughout the year in return.

To learn more about the program join EarthCorp for an info-session on Feb. 28 at the Tukwila Community Center, 6:30-7:30 p.m. – snacks and refreshments provided.

Register today on EarthCorps calendar: contact Project Manager Mariska Kecskes at mariska@earthcorps.org with any questions.
