About

Are you interested in helping the environment? Learning more about trees? Making a big difference in the community in just a few hours? Join us for the first planting of this season in partnership with the City of Hillsboro and Clean Water Services at Jackson Bottom Wetlands preserve! This planting is part of the Tree For All campaign which has planted over three million native plants in the Tualatin River Watershed in the past decade! Clean Water Services, Friends of Trees, thousands of volunteers, other non-profits, city partners, and private landowners will be working together this season to continue the success of this program. All are welcome, no experience needed!

Please arrive by 8: 45am to register and be assigned a crew. The planting starts promptly at 9:00am. We provide gloves and tools, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes or boots. Breakfast treats and coffee / hot chocolate are provided to get everyone started on the right foot!

RSVPs are not required, you may simply show up (although we do require that you let us know if you're organizing a group larger than 5 members). Please contact Randi or Jenny at 503-595-0213 or Volunteer@FriendsofTrees.org if you have any questions or need more information. We look forward to seeing you out there!
