Opportunity Details

Restore Terwilliger Blvd Forest (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 of the city? Think again! Enjoy your Saturday morning working outside to restore our urban forest and meeting others in our community.

About this Opportunity

- Join Portland Parks & Recreation, Friends of Terwilliger and the West Willamette Restoration Partnership to restore our urban forest in southwest Portland. Terwilliger Blvd has been a main thoroughfare for almost 100 years! Many hikers, runners, and bicyclists utilize this verdant boulevard. 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 at this specific event, we can work with you to find another time to come volunteer! 

What to Bring and Wear

Dress for the weather, wear long pants, wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and bring a water bottle. Note: some work may be on uneven ground. PP&R will provide water, tools, gloves, project instruction and snacks.  


Exact location details will be sent to you via email by the volunteer coordinator prior to the project.
