Join Palouse Conservation District (PCD) to help improve water quality and create habitat along local streams by planting native trees and shrubs, removing mulch fabric, and eliminating invasive plants! Events will take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays in October and November from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. 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.
Please 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 considered closed-toe. Participants are responsible for their own form of transportation to and from the site. We may travel to another location from the meeting spot. Carpooling is encouraged when possible. Water will be available on-site, but a water bottle and/or snacks are recommended. PCD will provide tools, water, and gloves for participants.
All participants will be asked to complete a health screening before participating. We recommend all participants show up 10 minutes early to complete forms and waivers.
We hope to see you there!
