Join Metro at Newell Creek Canyon Nature Park for a community planting event. Participants will plant native plants such as Oregon Grape and Kinnikinic along the edge of the parking lot and spread wildflower seeds in lawn areas to support native pollinators. All ages and experiences are welcome. Tools, gloves and refreshments provided. Participants will have the opportunity to join an optional group hike. The plantings are easy and accessible, but the hike and trail is moderate to difficult, in distance and grade.
Ages: all ages
Advanced registration is required. Event size limited to 15.

Pet policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at most regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage sensitive habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials.
