Metro is looking for volunteers
Register to volunteer at the event.
Join Metro arborist Howard Rasmussen for a hands-on class on winter pruning. Watch demonstrations then practice in the orchard by the popular Bybee-Howell House on Sauvie Island. Bring gloves and dress accordingly for this rain-or-shine class. Tools will be provided, though participants are free to bring their favorite loppers. Hot drinks provided.
This is the outdoor follow up on the in-classroom workshop conducted in December on winter pruning techniques, but is open to everyone, whether you attended or not. Instruction will be provided.
Cost: free; advanced registration required
Ages: 16 and older
