Volunteer at La Center Bottoms

Join us as we plant trees to enhance habitat and benefit fish and wildlife in the La Center Bottoms wetlands. Get outdoors, have fun, and make a difference while exploring Breeze Creek and the East Fork Lewis River. In 2015, we completed a habitat restoration project to reconnect the wetlands to the river - read more about that project here and here.

Make a difference while exploring Burnt Bridge Creek, which feeds into Vancouver Lake. Help plant trees to benefit the water quality and habitat of the creek. We'll be planting upstream of the multi-use path, so this is an opportunity for you to explore more of the creek than you'd normally see.All ages welcome! Fun for groups, families, and individuals.
