Weed love to see you there

Published on March 14, 2017 12:54PM

The Nature Conservancy is looking for volunteers to help out at a Saturday, March 18, work party in Tillamook, repotting and weeding around native plants.

The endeavor is the result of a partnership with NORP, the Northwest Oregon Restoration Partnership, which coordinates the grow-out of locally adapted native plant species for restoration efforts in eight counties in northwest Oregon.

Recent habitat restoration projects using NORP plant materials include the Miami Wetlands and Kilchis Preserve in Tillamook County.

No experience is necessary. Volunteers should bring enough water and food for the day, along with clothing suitable for working in covered, unheated building. Bring hand clippers and gloves if possible.

Registration is required at nature.org/oregonworkparties. For more information, call 503-802-8100 or email orvolunteers@tnc.org.
