Earth Day at the Arboretum

Calendar/Event Details

Give back to public lands and help restore the Arboretum on Earth Day! Once again, we're partnering with the Student Conservation Association for a work-service event in the park.

Volunteers will help UW and Parks gardeners spread mulch, remove invasive weeds, and maintain trails.

Project materials and gloves provided. Wear long pants and closed-toed shoes, and bring a reusable water bottle.

VOLUNTEERS OF ALL AGES WELCOME! For young children, we will have a work area close to the check-in station at Crabapple Meadow, where they will be able to have fun pulling weeds such as ivy and buttercups and/or mulching (under the supervision of their care givers).

Sign up online via our event page.

Meet at Crabapple Meadow at 9 a.m. for coffee and snacks.
