Lents and Brentwood-Darlington Paint the Town Green Cleanup

Lents and Brentwood-Darlington Paint the Town Green Cleanup!

Join KINK, Metro, the City of Portland Graffiti Abatement program, SOLVE and Lents for the Paint the Town Green clean up event on Saturday, June 1st from 9am to 1pm.  We’ll be cleaning up litter and graffiti in various SE neighborhoods throughout the morning, and we’re looking for volunteers to join us. You don’t have to live in those neighborhoods to help clean them up! We’ll provide the supplies along with snacks AND lunch: you provide the energy. We will meet at Glenwood Park for breakfast snacks and a quick training, then start the clean up on 82nd.  At the end of the clean-up, we will have lunch back at Glenwood Park.  Sign up for Paint the Town Green today!

Tree History in Lents

Join Portland historian Dave Hedberg and the Lents & Brentwood-Darlington Tree Team to learn about the trees in your community and how history has shaped our urban forest. Using trees as historical anchors, we’ll explore the history of Lents and how trees are inextricably intertwined with the neighborhood. Understanding and valuing trees historically leaves us better equipped to make future decisions and avoid unexpected consequences inherited from our past.  Click here to register or visit their event on Facebook.
