Many ways to volunteer
Here are some on-campus sustainability projects that you can volunteer with:
The Campus Farm is always looking for students passionate about farming on campus and local food! By participating on the farm, you can get invaluable experience in helping to manage and develop a sustainable edible food space, and play a huge role in figuring out the full cycle of food growth from seed to stomach! Please go to the Campus Farm webpage for more information about the farm.
You can also get involved with the farm by attending regular work parties or hosting your own event in the space.
Over winter, we will be in the spring planning process, and will not be hosting regular work parties. Please contact us if you would like to be involved in helping to plan spring on the Farm or for questions!
North Creek Wetland
Interested in getting hands-on experience in wetland restoration? Want a break from sitting indoors? Volunteer for a shift in the wetland!
The wetland is open two days a week for reservable volunteer slots for any interested students, staff, and faculty. Each volunteer session will last about 3 hours. Volunteer sessions will involve hands on weeding and pruning of invasive species and other general wetland maintenance. This work is incredibly valuable for the health of our wetland ecosystem and allows the wetlands staff to continue avoiding the use of pesticides in its management. Volunteer sign-ups here.
