Arbor Day Stewardship Crew

Arbor Day Stewardship Crew

Date(s) - April 28, 2023
9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Celebrate Arbor Day by volunteering at Portland’s living museum of trees!

Volunteer to care for Hoyt Arboretum’s trees and trails with a variety of hands-on stewardship projects. Projects vary for each crew depending on the needs of the season, but often include invasive species removal, weeding and mulching, trail maintenance, and more. With 189-acres and more than 6,000 trees along 12 miles of trails, volunteers are incredibly important to maintaining Hoyt Arboretum’s tree collection and trail system, and it’s a unique opportunity for volunteers to learn about and care for rare and unusual trees and plants from around the world.

Stewardship crews occur rain or shine; volunteers should come dressed for the weather including long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes.

Volunteers should plan to bring water, snacks, and any 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.
