Volunteer with Depave


Pavement increases stormwater runoff and the urban heat island effect. Depave is a Portland project that promotes removing unnecessary pavement. You can volunteer to work on pavement removal projects that increase urban green space and protect water quality. See their website for guidance on depaving your site.


Depave volunteers contributed over 1,300 hours to depaving southeast Portland last year in projects at Lewis Elementary, Arleta School and St. Mary Ethiopian Church! Join them to improve our watershed health.
