In recognition of April as National Volunteer Appreciation month, Tualatin celebrates the groups, families and individuals who strengthened the bonds of our community through service. Thanks to these special individuals, our community is greener, cleaner and more vibrantly connected to each other.

800 volunteers gave 17,000 hours of their time to a variety of City programs. Volunteers planted over 4,000 trees and got tough on trash in the Hug a Street program. Volunteers shelved books, Spruced up the Library, and volunteered as Homework Helpers to give an extra hour of educational support to students at Bridgeport Elementary.  

The Tualatin Arts Advisory Committee and Veteran’s Plaza Service Inspired Art Committee worked collaboratively to develop the vision for the Veteran’s Memorial Plaza at Commons Lake Park. This project honors our veterans, and revitalizes the east side of Commons Lake with a fountain, new landscaping and three art installations.

Do It Yourself volunteers scheduled their time to remove invasive plants and litter from our restoration sites and trails and over 100 summer youth volunteers came out for Library Summer Teen and TEAM Tualatin. Join us in celebrating and appreciating the volunteers in Tualatin who generously contribute their time to keep Tualatin growing, learning and connected.
