Opportunity Details

Marquam Nature Park Trails Volunteer Event (age 14+) *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

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 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 trail restoration. 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!

Volunteers will learn trail building skills, and increase knowledge about local ecosystem and community building.

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, and project instruction.

Exact location details will be sent to you by the volunteer coordinator prior to the project. Contact Ahmed Yusuf with any questions using the email button below or by calling 503-260-2329
