Help remove asphalt and prepare the site for fall planting. The Stormwater Committee members and Depave will provide educational materials about the benefits of removing pavement and green infrastructure.

Everyone is welcome to this all-ages event. Event hosts will provide gloves and all required tools as well as snacks and drinks. A shuttle departing from the PNCWA Conference hotel, The Double Tree Hotel by Hilton Portland, will pick you up at 9:15 AM to ensure you will be able to attend the volunteer orientation and warm-up starting promptly at 10am.

Please dress for the weather (bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, raincoat, etc.). Due to the physical nature of pavement removal, CLOSED-TOED SHOES ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE and long pants are highly recommended.
