About

=================================================================

Hello, friends. Due to immense flooding in the Jackson Bottom Wetlands, and little to no sign of relief from more rain, we are being forced to CANCEL this event. We thank you for your support and understanding as we do our best to ensure the safety of our volunteers and staff is put first. We hope to see you at another event later this season!

=================================================================

If you love being outdoors and want to help your community in a fun and healthy way, join Friends of Trees as we plant native trees and shrubs to benefit the beautiful Jackson Bottom Wetlands!

There will be an approximately 10 minute walk from the parking lot to the planting area. Please arrive by 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. Look for Friends of Trees signs to help guide you. The event will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun!

This event is in partnership with the City of Hillsboro and Clean Water Services at Jackson Bottom Wetlands preserve. This planting is part of the Tree For All campaign which has planted over three million native plants in the Tualatin River Watershed in the past decade! Clean Water Services, Friends of Trees, thousands of volunteers, other non-profits, city partners, and private landowners will be working together this season to continue the success of this program.
