Lake Oswego water remains safe to drink and use. A regional chlorine shortage has disrupted supplies. The City is monitoring the situation and asking everyone to use water wisely and reduce usage. Learn more.

Parks Stewardship Opportunities

Join a friendly Stewardship work party and restore the natural habitat. No experience needed as the Parks' Friends Groups will share their expertise! Although we'll be 6 feet apart in the woods, we'll work together to restore the natural areas!

Volunteers need to register prior to attending a work party. Work parties have limited volunteer capacity due to Covid protocol. 

How do I register?  Please email or call the name listed as Contact for each work party. The Contact will share work party availability and collect information as needed.  

What form do I fill out to volunteer?  Please fill out the Stewardship volunteer waiver (see attachment on this page) and bring it to the work party Contact.

What do I need? Please bring your own work gloves and possibly a shovel or pruner. Bring water to drink. Abide by 6-foot physical distancing at all times between you and anyone outside your household. 

What do I wear? A mask! Dress for the weather with sturdy footwear as we restore the habitat in rain or shine. 

Don't forget! Before attending an event, check this webpage and the event for any updates of weather or conditions.  Wash your hands prior and following the work party :)

Uh Oh! Stay home if you, or someone you've been in contact with, feels unhealthy and shows symptoms of Covid-19. We appreciate your cooperation to ensure safety for all volunteers in these Covid-19 times.
