Thank you for your interest in volunteering to keep Portland's natural area parks healthy, beautiful and safe for people and wildlife!
Here are a few tips to get you ready for your next stewardship event.
While most stewardship events do not require an RSVP, please check the description to make sure that advanced registration is not required.
PP&R staff will be on site to greet you and will provide gloves, tools, training for the day's activity, and a snack to keep you going.
In order to ensure your comfort and safety, please remember to dress for the weather, wear close-toed shoes, bring a water bottle, and be ready to get dirty!
Unless otherwise noted, all events are family friendly and all ages are welcome to participate. However, children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult for the duration of the event.
While groups are welcome to join many of regularly scheduled stewardship events, please contact the event coordinator listed in the description before arriving with a large group. This will ensure that threre are enough gloves and tools for everyone to work. We are also available to schedule special service events at your group's convenience during the week or on weekends.
