We want to know you better. We want you to know us better. That’s why we’ve expanded our roster of volunteer days, tours, and outreach events, not to mention our social media channels and e-news offerings. From volunteer days to wildflower tours to Habitap pub nights, there are plenty of ways to know us and the Northwest better. Pick one (or two or three) and RSVP or sign up. Because the more we experience the Northwest together, the more invested we are in its future.

Sign up for the Moss e-newsletter

Inboxes sure are crowded these days. So we’re committed to making sure The Moss is one e-newsletter you’ll be happy to receive. Volunteer days, tours, events, news, and a lot of fun: Our well-crafted monthly e-newsletter is all about connection and celebration. Bring Northwest nature into your daily life. Sign up for The Moss. It covers everything.

Volunteer Your Talents and Time

We love to connect people to our work. Join us as an extra field hand, an office helper, a photographer, a member of our Emerging Leaders Council, you name it. Check out our volunteer opportunities to learn more about all the ways you can get involved, or sign up to join our Volunteer Action Team.

Take a Tour & Join the Fun

We like to keep our calendar of tours and events full, especially in the Northwest’s (somewhat) drier months. Please join us! Our tours are a fabulous, immersive way to get out on our properties and to learn how we work to make the Northwest better. We also host picnics and pub nights.  View all of our upcoming tours or email us with questions. You can also browse all of our upcoming events.
