Powell Butte Nature Park (Outer Southeast) trail work and plant care

Saturday, June 13, 9:00 AM-noon

Join Hands On Portland and Portland Parks & Recreation to improve trails and care for plants on Powell Butte. Trail work helps to keep trails safe and useful for hikers, bird watchers, bikers and horseback riders. Plant care helps native plants to survive through hot summer months. Wear long thick pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy shoes. Bring a water bottle, rain gear, and sunhat. Instruction, tools, gloves, water, snacks, and coffee/tea provided. (Note: Provided items list may be modified due to concerns over Covid-19; as an RSVP’ed volunteer, you will be sent updated information before the event.)  Trailwork participants should be at least 8 years old and accompanied by an attentive adult. (Participants unaccompanied by an adult should be at least 14 years old.) Trailwork volunteers will be walking up to 5 miles during the event, so arrive before 9:00 AM to make sure you meet up with the group. Plant care volunteers will stay near the visitor’s center.
