Errol Heights Park Third Saturday Volunteer Event

Volunteer Event
Join Friends of Errol Heights and Johnson Creek Watershed Council community members to improve this newly-constructed park!
9:30 am 12:30 pm

Project details: Join Portland Parks & Recreation, Johnson Creek Watershed Council (JCWC) and the Friends of Errol Heights community members to enhance this newly reconstructed Park. Ecological enhancement of this area provides cleaner air for community members and cleaner water in Johnson Creek, which supports salmon and other water creatures. Everyone welcome, and no experience necessary! Volunteers will likely be removing litter, learning about beavers, and/or removing nuisance plants. Children welcome and must be accompanied by an attentive adult. See below for important information about what to expect, and what to wear and bring to the event.  A reminder email will be sent to registered participants 1-2 days before the event from JCWC; please read the reminder email for updated and detailed instructions. 

Registration is required through Johnson Creek Watershed Council

Thank you for your interest in volunteering to keep Portland's natural area parks healthy, beautiful, and safe for people and wildlife! 

Here are a few tips to get you ready for your stewardship event:

  • Stay home if you are experiencing symptoms of any contagious illness or have tested positive for Covid-19.  There will be other opportunities to volunteer! 
  • In order to ensure your comfort and safety, please remember to dress for the weather, wear closed-toe, sturdy shoes; long pants and long-sleeved shirts; and be ready to get dirty!  
  • Unless otherwise noted, all events are family-friendly and all ages are welcome to participate. However, children under 14 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult for the duration of the event.  
  • While groups are welcome to join many of our regularly scheduled stewardship events, please contact the event coordinator listed in the description before arriving with a group of 10 or more people. This will ensure that there are enough gloves and tools and project tasks for everyone. We are also available to schedule special service events at your group's convenience during the week or on weekends. Learn more about programs for groups 
  • If you are looking for community service to fulfill court requirements, please call 503-823-5121. You must be registered with our program before undertaking any community service.
