About Us


The Friends of Powell Butte formed in 1990. We are an organization consisting of neighbors and friends dedicated to and concerned about the qualities and resources of Powell Butte Nature Park. The Friends of Powell Butte work closely with Portland Parks & Recreation and the Water Bureau in planning and implementing park improvements, providing volunteer assistance and citizen input.

Monthly meetings are held the third Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at the Visitors Center, main parking lot.

Donations are welcome to help support the stewardship of Powell Butte Nature Park.
