Extra hands are always needed at once-a-year maintenance events. We invite individuals
and groups to explore the following options:
Community Partnership Month is held throughout
the state during April to celebrate Earth Day. Many parks hold volunteer events to improve parks
and prepare for the summer months. Projects include tree planting, clean-up projects, landscaping,
trail maintenance and nature walks.
Operation Shore Patrol is an annual beach
cleanup that occurs the third weekend in September. All coastal state parks participate
in this event in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup.
Washington Coast Cleanup is an annual beach cleanup that occurs on a Saturday in late
April. The cleanup spans almost the entire Washington coast and includes all coastal
state parks. For more information, please visit www.CoastSavers.org.
Long Beach Peninsula cleanup events are held in January, April and July. For more
information, visit www.Ourbeach.org.
