Forest Park Conservancy has a mighty, yet small staff and counts on dedicated volunteers to step forward to provide leadership support throughout the year. This is a great way to strengthen your skills and make a big difference in the park. Here are just a few of the leadership opportunities at FPC:
Forest Park Conservancy is always on the lookout for volunteers who enjoy helping others at our work parties. Each year, we organize two Crew Leader training sessions for volunteers wishing to deepen their technical knowledge and take on greater leadership roles at our volunteer events. For more information on becoming a Volunteer Crew Leader, email our Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator, Guy Maguire or call (503) 223-5449 x 106.
DISCOVERY HIKE LEADERS
FPC is excited to show others the splendor and wonder of Forest Park. We have hikes on a wide range of topics including photography, insects, natural medicine, and history. We hope to provide something for everyone! If you are knowledgeable about plants, geology, wildlife, history or other topics related to Forest Park, we’d love to talk with you about leading a hike! We are always looking for more hike leaders who can share their knowledge and help others experience the wonders that Forest Park has to offer. For more information on becoming a Discovery Hike Leader, email our Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator, Guy Maguire or call (503) 223-5449 x 106.
RAPID RESPONSE TEAM
Forest Park Conservancy's Rapid Response Team is made up of volunteers who each adopt a hiking route and collectively survey all 47 miles of soft surface trail in Forest Park following a big storm. The information gathered from our Rapid Response Team members is used by Forest Park Conservancy to pinpoint and remove passage barriers and/or safety hazards on the trails of Forest Park. For more information on joining the Rapid Response Team, email our Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator, Guy Maguire or call (503) 223-5449 x 106. Anyone can report a downed tree!
