Do you enjoy biking AND trees? Bring your bike and join us to plant more trees around Portland neighborhoods as a volunteer with Friends of Trees! We especially need bike trailers or cargo bikes to haul tree stock and supplies, but it's not required. Just you and your bike is cool too!

To plant, please arrive to the meeting site by 11:45am to enjoy a small lunch. The planting starts promptly at 12:00pm (noon) and runs until 4pm at the latest. We provide gloves, tools, planting guidance, and a thoughtful bike route and tree map, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes.

WRENCH ON BIKES FOR SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOLS Link
Learning Gardens Lab, 6745 SE 60th Ave Take Trimet (Greenhouse 4)
10:00am - 2:00pm
Each year we (The Street Trust) bring bikes to hundreds of 4th and 5th grade classrooms and teach thousands of students how to bike safely on the streets. Needless to say the kids do a pretty good job of riding safely and doing some damage to the bikes. The bikes need routine maintenance every month to keep the parts working smoothly. So if youve got mechanic skills come join us for some greasy fun.

Not an experienced mechanic? No problem! If you can inflate tires and wash bikes we need you too! Don't want to touch a bike at all? Have no fear! You can help me inspect and sort helmets and inventory parts.

There will be coffee and pastries!
