Join Metro at Chehalem Ridge Nature Park for a community planting event to strengthen the park’s forest habitat. Participants will learn to plant understory native plants such as sedges, woodland strawberry, sword fern and salal. All ages and experiences are welcome. Participants will have the opportunity to join an optional group hike to a nearby viewpoint towards the end of the event. The plantings are easy, but the trail is moderate in distance and grade. Tools, gloves and refreshments are provided.
Ages: all ages
Advanced registration is required. Event size limited to 15 people.
Registration is handled through the US eDirect, a service of Metro. To register, click the blue "register" button to enter our registration portal.
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.
