EverGreen Escapes, a Seattle outdoor adventure company, recently began offering a half-day voluntourism tour that can be arranged and customized for private groups.
The tour gives Seattle visitors the opportunity to take part in habitat restoration in Seattle nature parks. Volunteers meet with restoration stewards and assist in habitat improvement. Depending on the season, volunteers will remove invasive plants that choke out important native species, plant native plants or conduct beach clean- ups to remove trash that is harmful to wildlife.
Hotel or cruise terminal pick-up, refreshments and afternoon tea are included in the tour.
