About Us

History: EnviroCorps was founded in 2004 by Vernon Young. His goal was to improve our greater peninsula communities by providing volunteer and sponsorship opportunities on our local roads and in our local parks. He helped create and develop McCormick Forest and Harbor Family Park, and was involved in the creation of the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation and the Great Peninsula Conservancy. Vernon truly believed in leaving a place better than you found it.


With Vernon’s passing, EnviroCorps became part of the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation to help assure a permanent legacy of support for initiatives that improve our parks, trails, and open space resources, promote environmental awareness and stewardship, and engage our greater peninsula communities in the protection of our natural resources.
