Opportunity Details

Forest Park Restoration Volunteer Event (age 6+) *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 a Portland Parks & Recreation's largest natural area and enjoy your morning working outside and meeting others in our community!

About this Opportunity
- Join 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 trails, and it contains part of the 40-mile loop around Portland that connects to other parks. Many hikers, bikers, and other members of the public relax and enjoy Forest Park, and your effort will help keep this a high-quality natural area for people, native plants, and wildlife!

- Interested in signing up a large group? If you are interested in bringing 10 or more volunteers to this event, please contact the organizer beforehand - we may or may not be able to accomodate your group at the event. If we cannot accomodate you, we can work with you to find another time to come volunteer! 

- Interested in court-ordered community service opportunities with the City of Portland? Please call 503-823-5121 before volunteering.
