Work Party Schedule

The Bellingham Parks Volunteer Program offers small-scale community work parties during fall, winter, and spring at parks and trails throughout the city. Most work parties take place on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

All work parties follow strict COVID-19 guidelines and pre-registration is required. Please review our Safe Start Plan for details about our policies so we can keep everyone as safe as possible. Space is limited so please register early.

All ages and abilities welcome. Participants under age 14 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

We provide tools, gloves, hand sanitizer, and instructions. Please dress for the weather and wear your mask, sturdy shoes, long pants, and weather-appropriate clothing. Parking information and reminders will be emailed to registered participants. If you sign up, please show up!
