Opportunity Details

Rescue Native Plants from Weeds (age 8+) *Impact Week*

Our mission is to help improve the ecological health of Mt. Tabor Park, to improve the air and water quality for the whole city, as well as make a better place for birds and other pollinators and create opportunities for humans to connect with nature. Spend the morning outside at Mt. Tabor, a cinder cone volcano in SE Portland, and help restore the health of this unique park.

We'll be removing invasive plants from area where we've planted native plants. We'll provide work gloves, hand tools, and help with plant ID.

The work you will be doing is outdoors so please dress for the weather (e.g. sunhat and/or raincoat, etc.). Closed-toed shoes and long pants are recommended.

Accessible by Bus #15 & #71, bike racks and free parking in outdoor parking lot by Visitors Center.
