Columbia Children’s Arboretum (NE Portland)
January 20 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Due to popular interest, this event is now full and closed to further volunteer groups. Please consider our Piedmont/Woodlawn neighborhood planting happening this same day/time, also in inner NE Portland. Individuals and small groups of 4 or fewer are welcome to simply show up!
Friends of trees is excited to partner with Portland OIC, Portland Parks & Recreation, the Columbia Slough Watershed Council, and Friends of the Columbia Children’s Arboretum with support from the Port of Portland and East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District to restore a part of one of NE Portland’s “hidden gems”: the Columbia Children’s Arboretum. We will be planting native trees and shrubs and removing invasive species including Himalayan Blackberry and English Ivy.
Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. There is a short walk of approximately 5 to 10 minutes from the parking area to the planting area. The event will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun!
Are you under age 18 and planting without your parent/guardian? A signed youth waiver is required for you to volunteer. We kindly request youth 15 years and younger are accompanied by an adult.
Please contact Jenny or Pablo at (503) 595-0213 if you have any questions or need more information. We look forward to seeing you at our event!
