Powell Butte Natural Area work party this weekend

By David Nguyen

Portland Parks & Recreation is performing some needed trail work on Powell Butte Nature Park this Saturday 9 am - 12 pm and we need all the help we can get!

The work will help keep the trails open and comfortable for hikers, bikers and horse riders. 

Interested in volunteering?  Meet at Gates Park @ SE 136th & Holgate Blvd. Turn east onto Holgate from SE 136th and follow to the parking lot.  The work party will likely be hiking quite a ways from the parking lot, so arrive at 9 am to be sure to meet up with the group. Please wear long pants and long sleeves, sturdy walking shoes, and bring a hat and water bottle.  Tools, gloves, water, and granola bars will be provided.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Stewardship Coordinator Susan Hawes at: or (503) 823-5937
