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 our regularly scheduled stewardship events, please contact the event coordinator listed in the description before arriving with a large group. This will ensure that there 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.

Announcing the Biggest Volunteer Event in Portland Parks History
Friday, October 11th & Saturday, October 12th, 2013!
What is "Parke Diem"?
Answer: a fun, two-day celebration of parks, volunteering, and the need to support Portland's park legacy.
"Parke Diem" is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit-powered initiative for park-loving people and organizations to unite, achieve, and raise awareness of our park systems' needs. Our goal is to enlist over 30 projects and 1,000 volunteers to create a new, highly visible tradition for the role citizens play in safeguarding and advocating for their park system. Whether you're already involved in a park-related group and are curious about joining or you're are a park-loving citizen wondering how you can get more involved, we want to hear from you!
