On Saturday, March 14 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, the public is invited to volunteer alongside the Friends of Powell Butte Nature Park, Hands On Greater Portland, and Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) to perform needed trail maintenance and restoration work at Powell Butte Nature Park.
Volunteers are encouraged to wear long thick pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy shoes. Bring a backpack, water bottle, rain gear, and sunhat. Instruction, tools, gloves, water, coffee/tea, and granola bars will be provided. Volunteers will be walking up to five miles during the event.
Meet at the SE Ellis Street and SE 145th Avenue. Recommended parking is on SE Ellis Street. Please be aware not to block neighbors’ driveways.
Please be aware that a major construction project is under completion within the Powell Butte Nature Park. Volunteers are reminded to keep out of fenced hazardous construction areas and to stay on open designated park trails during the restoration event.
This volunteer opportunity is family-friendly and all ages are welcome to participate. However, children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult for the duration of the volunteer event.
