When: 12:00 – 3:00 pm

Where: Meet in the head house at the DRC

Help wash pots in preparation for all the native plants we’ll salvage at the King County salvage on Saturday! This will be a fun and relaxing way to de-stress after a long week of classes, and hang out with your fellow restoration aficionados. Without clean pots, there can be no salvaged plants, and without salvaged plants, there is only chaos! (Just kidding- but the plants we salvage do get used in important restoration projects around the UW campus and we need your help!)

 

We will provide all necessary tools, and snacks for our excellent volunteers! Check out the attached map for the location of the head house.

 

Email sernursery@gmail.com for questions or more info.

 

Saturday, Feb. 6th: Whitman Walk work party!

When: 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Where: North of the Intellectual House on the main UW campus (see details below)

Join us this Saturday and offset some of the Superbowl snackadium calories you’re sure to consume by pulling ivy at Whitman Walk. We’ll be expanding into a new area just north of the Intellectual House (INT) (http://www.washington.edu/maps/). We’re looking for two types volunteers.

1.     Those who would like to act as leaders for students in the Introduction to Environmental Science class, many of whom have never participated in restoration work parties before

2.     Those who just want to do some damage to English ivy.

 

We’ll provide snacks, refreshments (please bring a water bottle if you have one though), work gloves and all the equipment. You provide clothes you don’t mind getting covered in dirt, and some serious motivation to attack English ivy! For those of you unfamiliar with Whitman Walk you can read more about it at our website.

 

If you’d like to attend or have questions please contact Cole Gross (cole144@uw.edu).

 

Saturday, Feb. 6th: King County Plant Salvage!

When: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm 

Where: Meet at the toolcage behind Miller Hall to catch the carpool to the Issaquah salvage site

This is a big one! Prove your toughness helping the nursery salvage plants with King County that would otherwise be destroyed as the county develops the site. This is a fun and satisfying way to get outdoors and make a difference on a Saturday, and spend quality time with some cool cats! Sign up below for a spot in the carpool as we head out to Issaquah to salvage native plants with King County.

 

When & Where:

Email sernursery@gmail.com for questions or more info.

 

Monday, Feb. 8th: Nursery potting party!

When: 2:00 – 5:00 pm

After all salvaging all those plants, we need to situate each one in a cozy container to live in until we find them permanent homes in restoration sites! Help us pot up all the plants from our Saturday salvage and unwind from your busy Monday by getting your hands dirty.This is a critical part of the salvaging process, and one of the most fun! Anyone who hasn’t transplanted and potted plants before will also gain these valuable skills which will come in handy for restoration and gardening projects in the future.

We will provide all necessary tools and equipment, and snacks for our excellent volunteers!

Afterschool Science Program with YMCA of Greater Seattle

Natalie Franz, an AmeriCorps member, is currently designing a STEM-focused afterschool program to be run at Tyee Educational Complex, which contains ACE High School and Global High School, through the Matt Griffin YMCA. Type and the SeaTac community are very diverse and international, with an unusually high number of former refugees and immigrants from around the world. It is also a very high-need school (>80% free or reduced
lunch). Her hope is to create a program that will expose students to career paths in science, as well as see diverse examples of STEM professionals.

Natalie is seeking connections with science professionals interested in volunteering their time to visit this program. She’d like guest-volunteers to speak about their career path and challenges they’ve faced, and to answer questions students might have. Potentially, mentor-mentee relationships with students could be developed, if the interest is there.

If you’d potentially like to be involved, let her know and she’ll keep you in the loop. If you know of any other scientists or other STEM professionals whom she could contact, she would really appreciate those connections! Potential guests at any stage of their career, including post-docs, graduate students, or even undergraduates, would be welcomed.

Want to Help the Forest Club’s Xmas Tree Sale?

This December, the Forest Club at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences is looking for some new members to help organize one of our most popular community traditions: the annual Christmas tree sale!

The Forest Club is one of the oldest and longest-running student clubs on campus, and every year the group sells freshly cut, sustainably grown noble firs to folks at the University of Washington and throughout the city of Seattle. We’re already getting phone calls and emails asking when the sale will happen this year, so we’re hoping to get it organized and advertised as soon as possible.

Sean Jeronimo, one of our grad students, is leading the tree sale this year, and he’s looking for help to head out and cut the trees and then staff the sale the following day. By signing up, you’ll need to be available to spend several hours on Saturday, December 5, harvesting the trees, and then help distribute the firs when folks come to pick them up on campus on Sunday, December 6. The Forest Club provides coffee and food for all volunteers, and both days are a ton of fun!

All students, graduate and undergraduate, are welcome, and we’ll sort out more particulars—meeting times, driving logistics, etc.—closer to the date. But if you think you’d like to get involved, reach out to me (Karl) or Sean as soon as possible!

Writing Tutors and Volunteers Needed for Dream Project Event

Calling ALL Potential Volunteers and Tutors of UW!

UW Dream Project is a student-initiated program that aims to assist low-income and first-generation high school students in attaining higher education. We do this by going on weekly visits to support our mentees through the college application process and through our various events throughout the academic year. We would like to invite you to volunteer at our largest upcoming event Admissions Workshop Weekend (AWW) on November 14th and 15th, 2015.

What is AWW?
AWW is a two-day weekend getaway for high school seniors to finish personal statements and college applications. In the past, 80% of attending high school students successfully completed at least one application during the weekend, which is hugely impactful on a mentee’s life.

How can I help?
As high school students consider how to present themselves in their applications and craft their personal statements, volunteer writing tutors offer support and feedback along the way. Volunteering is typically scheduled in 3-hour shifts, during which you will help students brainstorm, outline, flesh out, and/or revise their application statements. Lunch is available for all-day-shift volunteers. There will also be snacks, and coffee provided for everybody.

When and where is AWW?
Whether you volunteer for one shift or two days, your time and attention are invaluable to the high school students. Volunteers in the past have found their time at this event both enjoyable and extremely rewarding. There will be an opportunity for shifts from 11:00AM-2:00PM and 1:30PM-4:30PM each day. A mandatory orientation will be required at the beginning of each shift. Please fill out the volunteer survey at this link to register as a volunteer.

Volunteer Opportunity – Language & Culture

Do you want to become involved in an international community?

Would you like to practice your foreign language skills or develop cross-cultural experience?

Volunteer with the Language Exchange Program!

The UW International and English Language Programs (UW IELP) is a program which provides English language instruction to international students from a variety of nations/across the globe! We work hard to connect our students with the UW community and others in the greater Seattle area.

We offer 3 great volunteer opportunities to develop global citizenship, improve language skills, and connect people!

Conversation Partner

We match IELP students with students, faculty, staff, and alumni of UW to participate in a language exchange. A pair can either spend half the time speaking in English and the other in a language of their choice, or speak the whole time in English – what we call a “cultural exchange”. The majority of our students speak Arabic, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. We also have many participants who are not learning another language but wish to gain insight into a different culture and meet others.

This is an excellent opportunity to make new friends, learn, practice another language, and share culture.

Classroom Volunteer

These volunteers attend an IELP class once a week to assist teachers by providing conversation practice. This is a great opportunity to familiarize oneself with teaching English as a second language and classroom learning.

Activities and Events

All volunteers will be regularly invited to attend activities and events (such as ice-skating, a tour at the Ballard Locks, or bowling at the HUB) throughout the quarter.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please sign up online at langex for questions.
