Volunteer with Public Works

Ways to Help

The Public Works Department offers many volunteering opportunities.  Which one is right for you?


Help remove debris from storm drains in your neighborhood during the fall and winter months. You can adopt as many drains as you feel comfortable handling (minimum 4).  Help promote community pride, and foster a sense of environmental stewardship. Remember - nothing but rain down the drain!

Planting Events

Each year Bothell has planting events to help restore and beautify our parks, trails, and native landscapes. Bring your family and get to know neighbors and your local soils.

Restoration Projects

Bothell has several opportunities to get involved removing invasive species, replanting, and mulching. These events typically take place in the fall and winter months.

Pet Waste Research

We're looking for open-minded citizens to help us "count the piles." This valuable research helps us to determine the pet waste problem areas in our neighborhoods and direct our outreach appropriately. You can do this any time of the year and it's a great research project for elementary students. 

Outreach Opportunities

We have valuable information that needs to be passed around to all of our citizens. You can do this kind of volunteering at local events like sports games, parades, and community festivals.
