It takes an entire community to steward Forest Park. On National Trails Day, volunteer in the park and learn how PP&R and partners maintain Forest Park’s 80+ miles of trails.
Time: 9:00 am-12:00 pm
Registration: Click here to register with our partner Forest Park Conservancy.
What: We'll be removing excess growth from the spring along the trails in the park, making a safe corridor for park-goers to use the whole trail. This helps prevent overuse and erosion throughout the season.
How to get there: We strongly encourage carpooling whenever possible due to limited parking! Additionally, the tunnels on NW Cornell have been under construction, so please give yourself time when traveling to the trailhead! To get directions via public transit, check TriMet's Trip Planner.

What you'll need to be prepared: All participants are expected to wear close-toed shoes, long pants, and dress appropriately for the weather. Please bring a water bottle. Tools, gloves, coffee, water, snacks and project instruction provided.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering to keep Portland's natural area parks healthy, beautiful, and safe for people and wildlife!
