Upcoming Tacoma Nature Center at Snake Lake Events

October 13

Green Tacoma Day

Saturday, October 13 (10:00am - 1:00pm)


undefinedConnect with nature

Tacoma’s wetlands, parks and open spaces need your help! These natural resources provide people with clean air, clean water, and access to nature. Keeping them healthy is a community effort! Join hundreds of volunteers this fall as we work to keep Tacoma green by volunteering at one of twelve different event sites around the city. Volunteers will be pulling invasive weeds, removing litter, and planting and mulching native shrubs and trees.

It’s easy to volunteer!

Register online

Registration for all sites will open beginning August 1st. To register your group, family, or as an individual, visit our volunteer calendar and sign up!

Can’t wait until October?!

Hops for Treetops!

Thirsty for more?! This year, the Green Tacoma Partnership encourages you to learn about Tacoma’s urban trees and why they are so important to our quality of life. Join us on Saturday, September 8th from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm as we take you on a guided urban tree tour featuring stops at some of Tacoma’s local breweries – all in support of our goal to connect people to nature!
Sign up here beginning August 1st!


The Green Tacoma Partnership invites people of all ages to get outside, have fun, and engage in Tacoma's green spaces. Volunteers will plant trees, remove invasive weeds, connect with the community, and provide a helping hand to our natural areas!

No experience is necessary, so bring along your whole family, friends, or just yourself for a fun morning of service.
