Stewardship Calendar

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 or the partner group liaison 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. Learn more about programs for groups.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE TO FULFILL COURT REQUIREMENTS, PLEASE CALL 503-823-5121. YOU MUST BE REGISTERED WITH OUR PROGRAM BEFORE UNDERTAKING ANY COMMUNITY SERVICE.

Description

Johnson Creek – various sites (Inner & Outer Southeast) – beaver survey training

Thursday, August 8, 5:45 PM-9:00PM

Join PP&R’s community partner Johnson Creek Watershed Council as well as Metro and The Wetlands Conservancy, to learn how to safely document the presence and distribution of incredibly important ecosystem engineers: beavers! Volunteers will be surveying PP&R natural area sites along Johnson Creek and its tributaries, in addition to other public and private areas along the Creek. No experience necessary. At the end of the field season, your data will help us better understand how we can work with beavers to restore the watershed’s health and function.
