You provide a little sweat, we provide the snacks, the tools, and the fun! Unlike other volunteer opportunities on the Refuge, with habitat restoration work, you can join us once, or again and again. Become part of a team that not only gets to shape our refuge but also make a visible difference to the important species it supports. Sometimes our volunteers even get to venture to parts of the Refuge that are closed to the public. And, as with all our volunteer opportunities, come meet some new people and commune with nature! We host Wednesday Work Parties every Wednesday. Feel free to drop in once, or every week.

Seiya Bowen Nadachi Aleksey Kondratyev Ice Fishers May 4–28, 2017 First Thursday Opening Reception May 4, 6:00–9:00 PM Artist talk with Seiya Bowen: Thursday, May 4, 5:00 PM Artist talk with Aleksey Kondratyev: Saturday, May 6, 3:00 PM All Blue Sky events and programs are free and open to the public. “Each summer for over a decade, I returned to my childhood home in Japan. With every visit, the town faded away, slowly being replaced by a new infrastructure of bullet trains and fast-speed freeways.” In Nadachi, Seiya Bowen examines the socio-economic transformation of rural Japan by focusing his lens on the changes affecting the small town where his grandparents once lived. With increased urban development, many are abandoning Japan’s countryside for economic opportunities available in its metropolitan centers, leaving the older residents behind. Bowen’s quiet color photographs compose an intimate portrait of Nadachi alongside the striking visual evidence of the encroaching transportation systems moving people toward the larger cities. In this way, Bowen skillfully illustrates how these two worlds uncomfortably coexist within the same landscape, while also coming to terms with the personal loss of a particular way of life. Seiya Bowen is a photographer currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He graduated from the University of New Mexico with a BFA in 2014 and has since exhibited both nationally and internationally at venues such as SITE Santa Fe and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado. Bowen’s photography has been featured in Fraction Magazine, PDN and Aint-Bad Magazine, among other publications. This is his first solo exhibition of Nadachi.

Seiya Bowen Nadachi Aleksey Kondratyev Ice Fishers May 4–28, 2017 First Thursday Opening Reception May 4, 6:00–9:00 PM Artist talk with Seiya Bowen: Thursday, May 4, 5:00 PM Artist talk with Aleksey Kondratyev: Saturday, May 6, 3:00 PM All Blue Sky events and programs are free and open to the public. Aleksey Kondratyev’s Ice Fishers is a visual study of makeshift shelters used by Kazakh fishers as they fish along the frozen Ishim River. North-Central Kazakhstan is one of the coldest populated regions on Earth, yet many fishermen use nothing more than trash bags and salvaged plastic to protect themselves from subzero temperatures and biting winds. Despite this harsh environment, Kondratyev’s photographs reveal the beauty of these improvised structures, drawing attention to the material and shape of each functional sculpture as it floats within an endless expanse of white. Aleksey Kondratyev (b.1993 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan) works between Detroit, Michigan and Central Asia. In 2015 he completed a fellowship at Fabrica, a communication research center based in Treviso, Italy, allowing him to travel throughout Central Asia to complete his Formations series. He is also the director and co-founder of Stand Quarterly. an international contemporary art journal. This is his first solo exhibition of Ice Fishers.

It’s a one day pop-up bakery to raise awareness of mental illness through the sale of special cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other treats donated by local bakers. The baked goods are gray on the outside and sometimes colored on the inside to symbolize hope – all to encourage conversation about mental health issues, we all know someone who is struggling.

Summer’s almost upon us again, which means that your favorite neighborhood ciclovia is right around the corner! City of Portland Sunday Parkways, presented by Kaiser Permanente, is a series of five community events that promote healthy living by opening the city's largest public space - its streets - for people to walk, bike, roll, and discover active transportation! Besides all the active outdoor fun, the events strive to foster civic pride, stimulate economic development, and represent the investments that communities, businesses and government bodies are making in Portland's vitality, livability, and diversity. Last year over 100,000 people attended the events, with 250+ volunteers making it all possible. The first event of the season is coming up in Southeast Portland on May 21st, and we need your help to make it a success! Here’s how we need your help... • Mobile Superheroes to ride the route on your bike, keeping a watchful eye on the neighborhood and backing up the Intersection Superheroes. • Intersection Superheroes to command the barricades, making sure participants are safe from cars and neighbors are happy. Each shift lasts no longer than 3.5 hours, but you may sign up for more than one! ...and here’s how we show our appreciation! Every Sunday Parkways volunteer receives: • an HEATHER PURPLE Sunday Parkways volunteer t-shirt • refreshments before your shift • support before, during and after the event • a 2017 Sunday Parkways bandanna - volunteer for any three Sunday Parkways shifts across the season and it's yours! FOR MORE INFO AND TO SIGN UP: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/67621 Are you interested in helping with Sunday Parkways but May 21st doesn't work for your schedule?

On June 14th, we will come together for Voz’s 2017 Annual Dinner celebrating the lives of the diverse day laborers and immigrants who find employment through the MLK Jr. Workers Center and raising our voice in opposition to the many threats facing our community at this time. The event, which attracted over 250 supporters last year, is hosted by Voz staff, board, and volunteers, and attendees come from ally organizations, church groups, and the large community of individuals supporting Voz’s work. The dinner is catered by ¿Por Que No?, with live music, incredible raffle prizes, and a short program with community speakers sharing our recent successes and current efforts working with day laborers and immigrants in the Portland community. With this year’s goal of $30,000 we hope to continue our efforts to unite and support one of the most vital groups of Portland, day laborers.
