Tualatin Riverkeepers hosts dozens of stewardship events over the course of the season, ranging from habitat restoration projects such as invasive species removal, native plantings and mulching, to cleanups alongside and in the river. Many of these events are held in conjunction with community-based groups and local governments because we can't create a climate-resilient watershed alone!

Restoration Crew Leaders

TRK Restoration Leaders are oriented to assist or lead on group volunteer habitat enhancement events throughout the watershed! We ask that, once trained, Restoration Leaders commit to a minimum of four projects throughout the year.

If you’re interested in becoming a Restoration Leader, we ask that you attend a one-day training at Dirksen Nature Park in Tigard (to occur in early May), where you’ll learn about project management and safety, as well as identification and management of common invasive species, and planting and restoration of native species.

Perks of being a TRK Restoration Leader:

  • Hands-on applied ecology and habitat enhancement skills
  • Invitation to free trainings on Tualatin River ecology and restoration with local experts
  • Restoration Leader manual full of great tips and advice
  • A great opportunity to make a difference for our watershed
  • A stylish TRK Restoration Leader vest to wear at events, or at any social outing!
