Spruce Up Laurelhurst Park (age 15+) *Hands On*

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

Friends of Laurelhurst Park welcome your help!

We have a range of projects...the primary activities are removing invasive species (mainly ivy) and light pruning. Depending on the season and what needs attention, we also may participate in planting native species, litter patrol, painting picnic tables, leaf raking and mulch spreading.

Laurelhurst Park is Portland's only designated historical park and has an unusual array of horticultural plants and tree species. The pond and all the plants make this a special gathering spot, but also requires extra care to keep it up.

Come join in...theres always something that needs volunteer TLC! Bring sturdy work gloves. Some volunteers bring their own water bottles too.

Project Requirements:

  • Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older to attend this project; any volunteer under age 18 must attend with a parent or adult chaperone.

  • If you plan to bring your children or other guests to the event, you MUST reserve slots for them. The best way to do this is to create a Volunteer Team. You can then sign up your team for this project.
