SOLVE events are a fun, easy way to improve our environment, meet your neighbors and spend quality time outdoors with family and friends. Best of all our projects are family-friendly, open to all, and no experience is necessary. Our volunteer leaders bring the tools and the plan, but we need you to make it work!

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. This is the second event of the season and will be throughout North Portland on June 25th, 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 June 25th doesn't work for your schedule?

You provide a little sweat, we provide the snacks, the tools, and the fun! 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.

Last summer, thanks to the hard work of over 95 individual volunteers, we pulled close to 24,000 ricefield bulrush (schoenoplectus mucronatus) plants in our efforts to eradicate this Class A (Washington State) invasive species. It is back! If you are interested in a great opportunity to learn wetland plants, meet like-minded folks, experience ecological restoration first hand, and have fun outdoors this summer, we need you. We will meet every Wednesday and Saturday at 9 am in the River 'S' Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge through the middle of September. Wear long pants, rubber boots if you have them, and bring sunscreen and a refillable water bottle. We provide the tools (and some boots to borrow if necessary), snacks, and water. We end our work parties around 12:30 pm. Bring your friends and family. For more information, please email sean_davis@fws.gov.

Our life’s work is building bridges among cultural differences, softening barriers to living life with cultural others, and probing the mysteries of unknown places and peoples. We do so not only to teach more wisely, train more effectively, and manage more appropriately, but also sometimes for the sheer pleasure of experiencing differences. The Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication (SIIC) has a 41-year history of providing professional development for people who believe that this work matters. During its first ten years at Stanford University, and for the last 31 under the auspices of the Intercultural Communication Institute (ICI) in Portland, Oregon, SIIC has become a creative—and sometimes downright playful—community of intercultural scholars and practitioners from many cultures that meets each year to renew their energies and commitments. The SIIC atmosphere is inclusive—all participants should expect that their cultural differences will be appreciated and that there will be interest in mutual learning about those differences. Whether you are leading a global team, designing a new diversity initiative, preparing a course for fall term, or directing a study abroad program, you can anticipate a lively week or two of intense engagement with intercultural issues and resources—networking, listening, asking, and indulging in the company of diverse and similarly dedicated professionals. Please join us for what again promises to be a unique and significant learning opportunity. Your Friends at ICI

The Portland Brain Tumor Walk is an event to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Portland Brain Tumor Walk offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause, and helps to educate the local community on the diverse needs of the brain tumor community. All funds raised through our events allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors.
