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 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.
Masks are required for outdoor programs in Portland parks when physical distancing is not possible. If you are feeling any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay safe and stay home.
