Volunteers Needed!
Your help is needed at this work party where we will be removing weedy introduced plants and planting native trees and shrubs at the newly developed Gateway Green! Gateway Green offers 25 acres of bike adventure fun. Opening in 2017 and offering a variety of bike trail options, we are excited to be part of the multi-partner efforts to help revegetate the forested slope that borders the eastern edge of this area.

Please arrive by 8:45am to sign-in and enjoy some breakfast treats and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. The planting starts at 9:00am. We provide gloves, tools, and planting guidance -- all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather wearing sturdy shoes or boots, and be ready to have fun!

Please note: this park is only accessible via the I-205 Multi-Use Path. There is an approximately 10 - 15 minute walk from the Gateway Transit Center. Volunteers are encouraged to bike to the planting or take public transportation to the transit center and walk from there. Thank you for supporting an alternative approach to arriving at this community event!

Under age 18? A signed youth waiver is required for you to volunteer: www.friendsoftrees.org/youthwaiver. We ask that youth 15 years and younger are accompanied by an adult.

This event is in partnership with Friends of Gateway Green and Portland Parks & Recreation with support from REI.
