Parks Stewardship Opportunities
We need your helping hands!
Lake Oswego works with volunteer Friends Groups to help keep our parks and open spaces healthy and beautiful. Join us to protect and restore natural areas in our community. New events are added regularly to this web site, please check back for updates. The City Calendar also lists current and future Stewardship events.
Want to coordinate a group volunteer opportunity to give Mother Nature a helping hand? We're here to help coordinate Stewardship events! Gather up some friends and contact Babs Hamachek, Parks Stewardship Coordinator, at 503-534-5697 or email@example.com
We recommend volunteers wear long pants, sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Before arriving, please fill out the Stewardship Volunteer Waiver (in the "attachments" section to the right). Please bring a reusable water bottle and heavy-duty gloves.

Sat., May 5, 9:00am – 12:00pm. Join us in our final large work party as our 3-Year Metro Nature in the Neighborhoods Grant cycle comes to a close. During this event, we will finish the work we started by mulching the hundreds of native trees and shrubs that were planted thanks to the grant. Mulching helps to ensure the highest level of plant survival through Oregon’s dry summer months. Come see the dramatic progress volunteers have made, and learn about native habitat restoration.
Sat., May 19, 9:00am to 11:00am. The Friends of Springbrook Park have a mission in this magnificent natural area: to free the trees and clear the ground of invasive species! Join in their efforts to protect the carefully restored native plants that are in danger of being smothered by non-native invaders.
Parking: Uplands Grade School, 2055 Wembley Park Rd.
