Help Nature Consortium Restore West Duwamish Greenbelt

The Nature Consortium is continuing their work in the West Duwamish Greenbelt removing invasive species and planting native species every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm throughout the year. They are always in need of volunteers.

To help out, keep this schedule in your calendar:

  • What: Urban Forest Restoration in the West Duwamish Greenbelt
  • When: Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
  • Where: West Duwamish Greenbelt in West Seattle

Located in West Seattle near the Duwamish River, the West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, stretching from West Seattle to Burien.

Nature Consortium hosts volunteer work parties year round several times per week. Currently they are working Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the West Duwamish Greenbelt located in West Seattle. Each work party begins with a short informal forest ecology workshop, and then the remainder of the time is spent performing various restoration activities, including planting native trees and shrubs, removing invasive species, mulching previously-planted areas, and more.

Musicians perform for volunteers at many of the restoration work parties. The Nature Consortium volunteers work rain or shine, so dress appropriately with long pants, warm and dry layers, closed toed shoes and rain gear as needed. Nature Consortium provides gloves, tools, a light granola bar snack (feel free to bring a lunch) and a jug of water. Please bring a refillable water bottle.
