Why join VOW? There are many good reasons, here are a
VOW is volunteer-powered. With only one paid staff, rest
assured that a dollar donated is a dollar spent building trail, restoring a favorite
route, planting a tree.
Stay abreast of volunteer work parties and special events
through our newsletter, Trail Notes.

Give back! We are lucky to live in this jewel of outdoor
recreation, rain and all. But safe access to public lands is under constant threat
by overuse, erosion, invasive species and lack of funding. Join VOW and be a part
of the solution!
What exactly does VOW do? Our mission is simple: we train
volunteers to be stewards of the environment. To accomplish this we partner with land
managers--from the City of Seattle to the Forest Service--to build trails, restore
habitat and preserve Washington State's rich heritage.
There are two ways to make a difference, and we at VOW
encourage both: (1) volunteer on one of our work parties--check out our calendar
of events--and (2) become a member. VOW relies
on member support to move dirt on the ground!
We offer membership benefits with each level. (Each level
includes a subscription to Trail Notes and a VOW sticker.)
$50 buys a trail tool like a Pulaski or a pair of loppers
$100 can pay for a crew leader to conduct a day of training
$25 per paycheck, or $650 a year, helps to fund a crew
leader for a week-long youth trail work party or 1,000 native plants for re-vegetation.
A one time donation of $1,000 will pay for 25 timber puncheons for trail construction over a wet area!
Why should I give through my workplace?

Member Only Events!
These are occasions for us to say thank you for
supporting VOW--and to have fun! In February, for example we held the 1st Annual Iron
Goat Trail snowshoe hike! Members experienced our favorite trail in its winter blanket,
then warmed up at the Stevens Pass Mountaineers Lodge with some apres-hike soup. Stay
tuned to this website and VOW's newsletter, Trail Notes, for future member-only
events. Questions? Contact the VOW office at 206 517-3019 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dues and donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
