Please join us at Mary S Young Park, West Linn. We will be working to allow the native plants room to grow. No experience required. We will provide instruction and assistance. This is a great opportunity for those interested in getting started in habitat restoration for the environment. We are building towards a major native shrub and tree planting next December.

We are dedicated to the restoration of the parks riparian habitat for citizen education, recreation and enjoyment. We have a vision to return the park to its native habitat. With the removal of invasive plants, the reintroducing of appropriate native plants, and the restoration of stream beds, the flora and fauna may return to its near original state.

We meet at the shed in the gravel parking lot. We have restrooms on site.
