Saturday Crew

Date(s) - October 1, 2022
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hoyt Arboretum
4000 SW Fairview Blvd
Portland, OR 97221


Volunteer at Hoyt Arboretum to care for our 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-toed shoes.

Volunteers should plan to bring a water bottle, snacks, and sun protection.

No previous stewardship crew experience is required; training, tools, gloves, and volunteer parking passes are provided. Registration is required (crew size is limited).

Volunteers will meet at the worksite; exact meeting location details will be sent out prior to the crew date.

Volunteer Age Requirement

Volunteers must be at least 16-years-old. Volunteers between the ages of 16 and 17-years-old are welcome to volunteer without an adult, but an adult needs to sign their waiver form.
