Let's dig holes and plant native plants! (age 0+) *MLK 2016*
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.
Volunteers will join Portland Parks & Recreation's No Ivy League for a morning of native planting in Forest Park followed by invasive species removal. Come out and explore and learn about our largest park in Portland and help restore this important natural area.
The mission of Portland Parks & Recreation is to help Portlanders play - providing the safe places, facilities, and programs which promote physical, mental, and social activity. We get people, especially kids, outside, active, and connected to the community. As we do this, there will be an increase in the wellness of our residents and the livability of our city. The stewardship program aims to engage residents as stewards of Portland’s parks and recreation system to help preserve the legacy for future generations.
Volunteers should dress for the weather, wear long pants, sturdy, closed toed shoes, bring rain gear and a water bottle. Tools, gloves, instructions and light snacks will be provided.
This project is open to all ages, but children under age 13 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 email@example.com
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.
