Thank you to all our volunteers that made Earth Day 2019 such a a success! Over 50 volunteers from Roosevelt High School, Schnitzer Steel, and Stumptown Disc Golf, along with the Friends of Pier Park regulars, all pitched in to help improve Pier Park.

In this short video, Portland Parks employee Dave Blado introduces volunteers to the day’s work.

Thank You To Our Sponsors

The Pier Park Pick-Up is a part of Oregon’s annual SOLVE-IT event where hundreds of volunteers participate in events across the State, cleaning up dozens of sites: removing graffiti, invasive plants, and garbage.

This year we are thanking New Seasons and Waterlink Web, who donated healthy treats and donuts, and Starbucks for donating coffee and tea.

Enjoy the attached gallery of pictures from the event.
