CWCAP is a volunteer organization making positive differences in Carkeek Park, Pipers Creek Watershed and your community.  CWCAP needs your passion, knowledge, and valuable time to advance education, engage park visitors, and bring new generations to a safe and healthy enjoyment of our natural resources.

Volunteer for positive action, to enhance your child’s outdoor education, or to simply spend time in a beautiful park while helping the community you live in.  Volunteer to educate, to learn, and to have meaningful conversations.

Many volunteer opportunities are part of yearly activities in extensive salmon programs, water quality monitoring, and education.
