Come Join our Happy, if befuddled, crew at one of the following activities:


Volunteer for Prairie Appreciation Day, Saturday, May 11th:

Help is needed on the day of the event.  No experience is necessary.  We are in particular need of help with children’s activities at various stations, parking, the Welcome station, and the Sales station.  We would like a 1/2 day commitment from our volunteers for scheduling purposes.  If you wish to volunteer, please send an email to Dennis Plank

Volunteer to help Set Up on Friday, May 10th:
If you’re available for a few hours on the Friday before the event we’ll be doing set-up tasks from about 9:00 to 3:00 at Glacial Heritage (see maps).  There are a variety of tasks from office type jobs to the physical labor of hauling and erecting canopies. If you wish to participate, please send an email to
Dennis Plank

Volunteer on Tuesday, May 7th at Glacial Heritage:
We have a regular work day on the South Sound Prairies on every Tuesday.  On the Tuesday before Prairie Appreciation Day we will be at Glacial Heritage to take care of miscellaneous tasks that need to be completed prior to the event.  Come join us for a fun day on the prairie without the crowds.  Tuesday workdays run from 9:00-3:00.  Please bring a lunch and water.

Volunteer on the Second Saturday of the Month:
Volunteers are always needed on the second Saturday of each month [10:00 to 3:00] at the prairie restoration work parties sponsored by the Center for Natural Lands Management.   Please send an email to Angela Winter, South Sound Volunteer Coordinator.  

Financial Support:
Direct financial support is always appreciated.  Donation cans will be available at the event.  If you should wish to send a donation in advance, please send it to the treasurer of Friends of Puget Prairies, Kathy Whitlock at FOPP, Box 155, Yelm, WA 98597.   Please make checks payable to Friends of Puget Prairies.   FOPP is registered as a non-profit organization with the State of Washington.  We will never send you an email asking for financial support.  If you receive one, please contact us so we can pursue whoever has compromised our website.

We will also be selling notecards, T-shirts, and Hats at the event. Please bring cash as the spotty cell phone service at Glacial Heritage prohibits credit card transactions.
