Darlin Creek Preserve Stewardship Projects

The Darlin Creek Preserve was conserved by the Capitol Land Trust (CLT) in the summer of 2016.  The preserve is gorgeous, protecting 300 acres of pristine habitat, and 100 acres of wetlands, lakes, and salmon bearing streams. We started work on this site on Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service in 2017, and have continuing stewardship and planting activities with CLT through the end of 2018! 

Please fill out a volunteer waiver for NPS and a separate waiver for CLT 18+ or the CLT waiver for minors ahead of time, and bring it to your selected work party.

As this is the beginning of our volunteer season, even reoccurring troops must fill out a form. One waiver per person, per year.

Planting Dates
Volunteers are welcome to come for as long or as little time as you want to! We will provide hearty snacks and beverages to keep you warm & fueled!
Preparation Dates
Preparation help is needed from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, with the exception of Saturday 10/13 when we will meet from 1:00-3:30 after our Nursery work party. These dates involve bending, lifting and generally hauling around plants.

Thanks to all the amazing volunteers who make this happen
