Join PP&R and Hoyt Arboretum Friends to care for Portland's living museum of trees.
9:00 am 12:00 pm

Join PP&R and Hoyt Arboretum Friends to volunteer with the Saturday Crew! Hoyt Arboretum is located on 189-ridgetop acres in Washington Park. The arboretum's global tree collection includes more than 6,000 trees representing more than 2,000 species. Volunteering at Hoyt Arboretum is a unique opportunity to learn about and care for rare and unusual trees and plants from around the world.

Stewardship crews occur rain or shine; volunteers need to come dressed for the weather, including long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes. Volunteers should plan to bring water, snacks, and other personal items they need onsite. No previous stewardship crew experience is required; training, tools, gloves, and volunteer parking passes are provided.

Registration is required through Hoyt Arboretum
