Be a Green Street Steward


Green streets are small rain gardens in the public right-of-way that manage stormwater runoff from streets. Portland has hundreds of green streets and many neighbors are interested in learning how they work and how to keep them operating, so the city offers a Green Street Steward Program.

Green Street Stewards

Since 2010, volunteers have adopted over 200 green streets facilities and 48% of the adopted green streets are in the Tabor to the River area. How awesome is that! Be a Green Street Steward this year and make a difference to our watershed health.
