Our Volunteers

The Watershed Council is fortunate to be supported by many volunteers. We have weekly volunteer work days at the Nursery, and can always use extra support for special events, or around the office. If you would like to help at the Nursery, on a field day, or have a special talent you’d like to offer in support, please contact Pat or Amber.

Volunteer Focus:

Barbara started volunteering at the Native Plant Nursery in 2013, and has learned a lot about native plants since then. As a member of Friends of Baltimore Woods, an all-volunteer group in north Portland, she is most interested in learning about plants from the native oak and madrone woodlands.
