Empowered on Powell Butte (all ages) *MLK Weekend 2020*
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.
The Johnson Creek Watershed Council was established in 1995 by community members committed to restoring Johnson Creek, a vibrant creek with many challenges. Our mission is to promote restoration and stewardship of a healthy Johnson Creek Watershed through sound science and community engagement.
Powell Butte: Native planting party! Come join as we invest in our local natural areas with 400 fresh native plants in the ground.
WHAT TO BRING: Our events are rain or shine! Please dress for the weather: warm and rain layers, sturdy shoes, and feel free to bring a water bottle or coffee mug to fill up. We will provide snacks, beverages, tools and training.
WHO: Everyone is welcome-if you are under 18 and are planning to attend without a parent or guardian, your parent will need to sign a waiver which you will bring with you to the event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get this waiver!
Not all volunteer positions are planting jobs! We have jobs for multiple abilities. Typical jobs include: Helping people sign in at the registration table, photography/videography, and litter pick-up are typically other options.
Big thank you to our partner Portland Parks and Recreation, and The Mintkeski Family Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation and Portland General Electric for their generous funding of the volunteer program.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome to attend this project; any volunteer 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 or guests 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. In the spirit of creating an atmosphere where people from all parts of our community are coming together to volunteer,
Team Captains are only able to reserve up to 50% of the spots on any individual MLK Weekend of Service Project. Team Captains are required to provide names and email addresses for each team member (over the age of 13) in order to hold spaces on a volunteer project or they may be removed from the 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, click on "My Account" and then "My Teams," above.
