Help Us Plant the Palouse!
Join us on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 am-12 pm in March and April!
Help us improve water quality along the Palouse's streams and create habitat by planting native trees and shrubs, removing mulch fabric, and eliminating invasive plants! Volunteers will have an opportunity to get their hands dirty and give back to the Palouse at various sites along the Bill Chipman Palouse Trail. This is a free, socially distanced, family-friendly event.
All participants will be required to wear a mask when social distancing of at least 6 feet is not possible, regardless of vaccination status. Surgical masks will be available for those who do not bring a proper face covering.
Be prepared to work outside in varying weather conditions including rain, snow, or shine. Dress appropriately for the weather, including sturdy shoes or boots. Volunteers will be walking on uneven terrain in tall grass. Long pants and closed-toe shoes are required. We recommend shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. Crocs or sandals are not closed-toe. Limited gear (such as raincoats and boots) may be available at events, but don't count on us having the stock or gear in your size, so bring your own.
Participants are responsible for their own form of transportation to and from the site. Carpooling is encouraged when possible.
Water will be available on site but a water bottle and/or snacks are recommended.
We recommend all participants show up 10 minutes early to complete forms and waivers.
PCD will provide tools, water, and gloves for participants.
