After the wet & stormy seasons, our trail network needs attention. If you enjoy using the trails at Hopkins, this is a perfect fit for your interests, and a good time to help. Before the day has ended, we need help setting up the seasonal canopy outside Hopkins Hall.

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY: We might pull out the grill for first time this year- if you'd like to chef for our volunteers, please arrange in advance. We'll purchase food if you can do the rest.

Please remember to call 503-632-2150 by the Thursday prior to each CFD if you plan to volunteer, join us for community lunch, or the tour. Thank You.
