The City of Mukilteo in partnership with EarthCorps is excited to offer a new Park Stewardship Program to the community.
Get Active, Get Outside, Volunteer!
The Stewardship Program is a great way to become engaged in your community and participate in a healthy activity that enhances the quality of life in Mukilteo. The Park Stewardship Program is a great way for citizens, young and old, to come together and help maintain and preserve our beautiful outdoor spaces in Mukilteo. Check out our new 2016 Park Stewardship Brochure!
Volunteers will attend four lecture and hands-on field workshops to include general program orientation & expectations, plant identification, best management practices related to invasive plant control and planting, trail maintenance and volunteer management. Once trained, stewards commit to at least 25 hours within a year to the program where they will implement an agreed upon work plan with their volunteer cohort. In addition, stewards will coordinate and lead community volunteer events.
