POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Keeping Powell Butte Nature Park Healthy and Safe - July 12, 2013

Join Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) staff, the Friends of Powell Butte Nature Park, and Hands on Greater Portland tomorrow to help complete Park and trail restoration work.

 

Volunteer projects for Saturday’s event include trail maintenance, fence repairs, invasive plant species removal, trash pick-up, and other much-needed projects. The event is family-friendly, and volunteers of every age are welcome. Child volunteers need to be accompanied and supervised by an adult. Volunteers will gather at the Gates Property parking lot, located on SE Holgate Boulevard, east of SE 136th Avenue.

 

Powell Butte Nature Park has a major construction project underway – a new drinking water reservoir. The Portland Water Bureau asks all volunteers to keep out of fenced hazardous construction areas, and to stay on open designated park trails during the restoration event.

 

For more information on tomorrow’s event contact PP&R’s Stewardship Coordinator Susan Hawes at (503) 823 – 6131.
