The campus farm is always looking for volunteers passionate about farming on campus and local food.
By participating on the farm, you can get invaluable experience in helping to manage and develop a sustainable edible food space, and play a huge role in figuring out the full cycle of food growth from farm to table! You can also get involved with the farm by attending our Spring Quarter Farm Lunch and Learn series or hosting your own event in the space.

North Creek Wetland
Interested in getting hands-on experience in wetland restoration? Want a break from sitting indoors? Volunteer for a shift in the wetland!
Volunteer sessions will involve hands on weeding and pruning of invasive species and other general wetland maintenance. This work is incredibly valuable for the health of our wetland ecosystem and allows the wetland staff to continue avoiding the use of pesticides in its management.
The wetland is an incredible piece of our campus history. To learn more, visit the wetland webpage or join us on one of our wetland tours. The wetland is closed to the public for safety, but we invite you to walk along the North Creek Trail and the wetland boardwalk. If you would like to request access to the wetland for research or any other reason, please fill out our Wetland Access Request Form.
