Event description
Friends and partners of Portland’s parks, gardens and natural spaces are gathering to build volunteerism, advocacy and programming.

About this event

The magic superpowers of Portland’s parks system are the 200+ non-profit, volunteer, and grassroots groups devoted to stewarding and developing programs for and in individual parks, natural areas, community gardens and community centers. This fall, PPF, in partnership with Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R), invites members of these groups to join together to build relationships, learn from each other and encourage more equitable access to our parks system.

Investing in your volunteers

Can't make the summit but still want to volunteer at the Day of Service? Click on registration and select the site you wish to volunteer at.

*Day of Service events offer opportunities to get out and visit a new park either on your own or with other members of your park or partner group. It’s also a great way to connect and, ultimately, learn from other folks involved in our parks communities. During check out, choose your location.

When you register for the event, you will register for the entire summit and receive individual zoom links for each workshop at the email you signed up for the summit with. You will also have the option to select a specific Day of Service site as part of your participation.

We recognize that financial costs are a barrier for some to participate. As a result we offer our friends and partner programming without a registration fee. 100% of your donations go towards future program development and are fully tax deductible.
