The 2014 work party season is here, and you are invited! Come enjoy Oregon's great outdoors while also preserving our natural heritage. Listed below are the details and instructions for participating.
Tom McCall Preserve (Portland Area)
Saturday, October 18 from 9 am-4pm
Located in the transition zone between the moist, heavily-forested west side of the Cascades and the drier bunch grass prairies of the east, Tom McCall Preserve delivers a spectacular bloom every spring. Volunteers will help repair and reroute hiking trail to McCall point (involves heavy lifting and digging on steep hillsides). Register here.
Boardman Grasslands (Central Oregon)
Saturday-Sunday, November 15-16
The Columbia Plateau’s best expanse of unplowed native sage and bunch grass also harbors Oregon’s largest Washington ground squirrel population. Volunteers will help plant native wildflowers, collect native wildflower seeds and improve facilities. Register here.
