Trail Days, First Saturday of Each Month
ONCE PER MONTH, 10 AM TO 1 PM
May 12, June 2, June 30, August 4, September 1, October 6.
Our goals are to tend this beautiful forest as a community, to give our attention to its life and development, to learn together, to keep these public trails safe and accessible, and to enjoy ourselves.
Trail work days will generally be the same time every first Saturday of the month. Work parties will be followed by a simple, shared lunch. Please bring your friends and family!
Second Annual Volunteer Days in July
JULY 1—3, MEALS AND LODGING INCLUDED!
We’re returning for a second year to our new tradition of summer time together on the land. This is a chance to work side-by-side in support of the spaces we love! This fun-filled time together will include morning and afternoon work parties each day with land and facilities care projects, plus long lunch breaks and leisurely fireside evenings. If you’ve longed for a chance to work and play on the Whidbey Institute land outside the structure of a workshop or conference, this is a great opportunity.
This community event is recommended for adults of all ages, or mature teens with a parent or adult representative.
