Want to help save the environment and make our world a better place but don’t know how? Here are some great environmentally effective places to volunteer time to save our planet in Portland, Oregon
Earth Share Oregon at http://earthshare-oregon.org/volunteer/ is a location where earth friendly volunteer events are listed for those who wish to share their time. It isn’t always time one wishes to share but a contribution and each one of the listed earth friendly activities allows for volunteers or donations. If volunteering is what is appropriate for yourself then by all means visit this website and choose which event is appropriate.
The Oregon Zoo is one place in Portland Oregon that can always use a helping hand. By sharing time at the Oregon Zoo and being an active volunteer in the environmental programs and teaching programs volunteers get not only immediate gratification for a job well done but the future of our natural resources and the lives of many endangered species benefit in the future.
