Opportunity Details

Saturday in the Trees (age 5+) *MLK 2016*

   Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King through meaningful service to our community: "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Join us as we contribute to the MLK Jr. Day of Service with some outdoor work. Spaces like the Hoyt Arboretum are key in building strong communities, exposing kids (and adults!) to nature, and providing a much needed respite from city life.

Work will include some brush removal, invasive species removal, and possibly some weather related tasks. It should be awfully fun and a great way to get dirty with some fine folks.

All tools, work gloves, and materials will be provided. Please wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy footwear; bring water and snacks.

In order to sign up for this project, volunteers must fill out this Portland Parks sign up form and click on the "Sign Up" link below to reserve your spot! 

Project Requirements:

  • You must be 5 years of age or older to attend this project; any volunteer under age 16 must attend with a parent or adult chaperone.

    All volunteers under 18 are required to bring a Youth Volunteer Release Form signed by their parent or legal guardian. Please download, complete, and bring this waiver with you on the day of the project.

  • If you plan to bring children/additional volunteers you MUST reserve slots for them. The best way to do this is to create a Volunteer Team, then sign up your team for this project. Questions? Email teams@handsonportland.org 

    IMPORTANT NOTE: You are responsible for ensuring that everyone signed up through your team attends - only sign up team members who have confirmed their availability. Teams that repeatedly sign up, but do not show up or show up with fewer volunteers than they signed up, may be removed. To add or remove team members from a project: log in to your volunteer account and click "Manage My Team" next to the appropriate upcoming opportunity.
