Marquam Nature Park Restoration Volunteer Event (age 6+) *Hands On*
Do you think nature is only found outside the city? Think again! Lend a hand in the Portland Parks Natural Area closest to Downtown Portland and enjoy your Saturday morning working outside and meeting others in our community!
About this Opportunity
Join Friends of Marquam Nature Park, West Willamette Restoration Partnership, and Portland Parks & Recreation for a morning of urban forest renewal. It's fun, close-in, accessible, and very important work. Many hikers, runners, and walkers utilize this park and its trail, and it's part of the 40-mile loop around Portland that connects to Forest Park. Your time and effort will help keep this a high-quality natural area for people, native plants, and wildlife!
What to Bring and Wear
Dress for the weather, wear long pants, wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and bring a water bottle. Please bring a water bottle and snacks. PP&R will provide tools, gloves, project instruction, water jug and snacks.
Exact location details will be sent to you by the volunteer coordinator prior to the project. Contact Mary Verrilli with any questions using the email button below or by calling 503-823-8367
