If you are interested in what we are up to this year sign up for our newsletter & you will be automatically sent updates about our work parties and club events!!

Everybody is welcome and appreciated!

You don't need to be a Western student, faculty, staff or enrolled in a specific class to come to any of our work parties. Come volunteer at a site close to campus or discover a new area within the Bellingham community.

Your support helps restore native environments and increase biodiversity. Sign up for a work party or bring your own environmantal learning, action or discovery project to our AS Club meeting.


Please contact us with any accessibility concerns. We want our events to be fun, equitable expeirences for all. Email us at Lead@wwu.edu with any questions.

What to Wear - and Not!

Please come Prepared:
  • LEAD works rain or shine, so wear your best working outfit
  • Wear warm clothing that you don't mind getting wet or dirty
  • Layers are best because the weather often changes during the work party
  • Make sure your shoes are waterproof (Uggs are not usually waterproof unless you have sprayed them)
  • Bring a waterbottle to help you stay hydrated
  • We provide work gloves but bringing an extra set of regular gloves never hurts :-)

Looks that LEAD!

Looks that lose!


If you are able to donate anything from our wish list, you can bring it to our office (or we will gladly pick it up).
