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 today!


We are actively working to provide more accessible work parties and list accessibility information on our events pages. Please contact us with any further accessibility concerns. We want our events to be fun, equitable experiences for all. Email us at Lead@wwu.edu with any questions.
