After your volunteer work, write a minimum of 2 completely full typewritten pages and greater than 700 words of your own written text, double-spaced, and 12-point Times New Roman font about
- what you did,
- why the organization/agency needed this work, and
- how this work contributes to our environment.
Please include a cover sheet with your name and student number. The 2 pages of your written text is the minimum to receive extra credit. These typewritten pages are to be your own words. Other material (photos, tables, reference section, quoted material, etc.) do not count toward the page total. Photos of your activity will add credit, particularly if they clearly explain what you did and how it helped the environment, with good captions.
Research of your own that helps explain the history and environmental significance of your volunteer work is expected. Quotes, ideas, and paraphrased material must have citations both in the body of the text and in a references section. If you reference any organizations or cite any information, please include a bibliography at the end referencing all your information sources (see below for examples). Your report will receive credit based on completeness, content, environmental impact, organization, and writing (including English, grammar, spelling etc.) in addition to your volunteer effort.
Remember to reference all of your sources (see below) and be careful not to plagiarize (see plagiarism-policy.html for a description of plagiarism and how to avoid it).
Information about the event I participated:
Thank you for volunteering for the Green Seattle Partnership on Sunday, Apr 08, 2018 starting at 10:00 am. Please take a moment to add this event to your calendar. We will also send a reminder e-mail closer to the day.
Here is a bit of information provided by the event organizer:
Help restore a Cheasty Greenbelt site on North Beacon Hill to the beautiful forest it was meant to be. This work party will focus on weeding previously planted areas, spreading wood chip mulch and freeing trees and shrubs from blackberry and ivy vines. We will also move a stack of burlap into the Greenbelt.
