Opportunity Details

Pier Park Pick-Up

Sponsored by Friends of Pier Park and SOLVE since 2007, the annual Pier Park Pick-Up keeps this North Portland park beautiful. Neighbors and local businesses come together each year to remove invasive plants, pick up litter, plant new native plants, and spread mulch in the native beds throughout Pier Park. Members of the Portland disc golf community also come out to make improvements to the disc golf course. Wear comfortable shoes that can handle mud and dirt and bring work gloves. Much of the work is on flat terrain, but some of it will be on slopes.
