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 current health department guidelines and safety protocol. Space is limited so please register early.

All ages and abilities are 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 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!
