Saturday Work Parties

Earn community service credit for school or other service requirements!

Drop in for our regular Saturday work parties and become a steward of our beloved natural area: Forest Park!! Volunteer will take a short hike to one of our various sites and work off-trail removing English ivy. This is a DIRTY job so come prepared in grubby, long-sleeved clothing and boots. We'll provide gloves and tools.

  • Groups of 10 or more should call 503-823-3681 at least one week ahead.
  • All ages are welcome to attend; young children must be supervised by an adult.
