EarthCorps envisions an equitable world where all people and nature thrive together. To make this vision a reality, EarthCorps cultivates leaders and community partnerships to advance environmental justice.

What we do

From city parks to backcountry trails, and everywhere in between, EarthCorps works to restore and steward the lands and waters of Puget Sound. We believe that we have a collective responsibility to care for each other and nature and that we need new ideas and boundless enthusiasm to create a better world where people and nature thrive together. That is why we develop leaders, strengthen community, and restore the health of our environment.

Our Corps Program brings young adults from across the United States and around the globe for a yearlong service-learning program. Crew members develop their leadership skills as they care for and restore natural areas across Puget Sound. We provide them with the best training program possible to advance their careers in the environmental sector and build an equitable, justice-oriented movement. After they complete our program, these changemakers return to their home communities, prepared to tackle the most pressing issues of our time.

With the increasing knowledge of existing environmental racial inequities and injustices, we've pivoted our work to center on those who’ve historically been excluded—to build a better world where all people and nature thrive together. To actualize this commitment our Community & Volunteer Team works with community partners to improve green spaces and provide educational projects that are most impactful, relevant, and meaningful to them.

Explore how we steward the Puget Sound region

Tukwila's Codiga Park showcases the impact of collaboration between our volunteers and crews. The team shares that this year, with support from our community, EarthCorps is hoping to bring the entire park into stewardship. There are four public events scheduled through the end of the year, and crews will support restoration work in areas that are difficult for volunteers to access, such as steep slopes.

Tacoma’s Gog-le-hi-te Wetlands exemplifies how the EarthCorps community contributes to long-term stewardship of an integral habitat.  Partnering with the Port of Tacoma, EarthCorps supports strategic work to protect and restore the habitat. Through the end of the year, EarthCorps hopes to expand work into areas that haven’t seen stewardship in many years and lead Green Tacoma Day’s public volunteer event. 

Burien's Hilltop Park is truly a community project! This year, EarthCorps is partnering with seven cities and nine BIPOC-led organizations – promoting programs, co-creating curriculum and events, and sharing resources. The team shares that our work is “a tiny piece of a larger puzzle of efforts with numerous other partners.” In support of Burien, EarthCorps has co-hosted volunteer events – providing opportunities for the community to get involved in restoring urban green spaces. 

As a community, we are collectively restoring urban parks and greenspaces to promote equitable access to the outdoors for all. EarthCorps has supported restoration work at Tukwila Community Center for five years, and for the first time since 2019, plans to hold on-site community volunteer events before the end of the year. Crews will continue habitat restoration work to maintain accessibility to the community's greenspace.

Your Impact

Nature is essential to our collective health and well-being, and with your help, EarthCorps is creating a healthy Puget Sound and a brighter future for all with committed environmental leaders and engaged communities. Thanks to supporters like you, we're working with more community partners and across more of Washington State than ever before! 

Since 1993, EarthCorps has:

  • Planted more than 1.75 million trees and plants that help to clean our air, mitigate climate change, and prevent polluted stormwater from entering Puget Sound;
  • Engaged over 200,000 community volunteers (including 100,000 kids) to care for our environment; and
  • Developed more than 1,175 young leaders through our environmental leadership program, who are now working in nearly 80 countries across the globe.

All of this work wouldn't be possible without generous people like you. Together, we’re doing big things to create a more equitable future where all people and nature thrive!
