Community Engagement at the Holden Center
Make a Difference Day 

On October 24th millions of volunteers around the country will give back to their communities and we hope you will join them! Last year the Holden Center sent over 90 students, faculty and staff out into the community and this year will hope to make an even larger impact.   

This year we have 5+ projects working with local community partners. 

  1. Walama Restoration: we will be preparing and maintaining a project site within Alton Baker park focused on the rehabilitation and re-vegetation of this natural area.
  2. Hendricks Park: we will be removing invasive plants, and if weather allows we will be revitalizing the area with native plants. 
  3. Arc of Lane County Families Connected: we will be participating in a harvest activity decorating pumpkins with children experiencing developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families.
  4. FOOD for Lane County Grassroots Garden: we will be helping to plant, harvest, and cultivate in the community garden. 
  5. FOOD for Lane County Youth Farm: we will be helping to plant, harvest, and cultivate the Youth Farm.
