Join Forterra and the Port of Tacoma in planting native flowering shrubs at the mouth of Hylebos Creek at the Place of Circling Waters. The shrubs we plant will improve pollinator habitat and will fortify the soil along this very important and restored wetland.
This event is on an early release day for Tacoma Public Schools. Kick-off your weekend by helping us work to improve the help of our urban natural areas!
Lunch provided. All ages and abilities welcome.

Forterra's mission is to act with immediacy to protect, enhance and steward our region's most precious resources--its communities and its landscapes. Since 1989, we have been working toward a future in which our children and grandchildren can experience nature in and around our urban environments.
Forterra conserves land by working with individuals, companies and local governments. We strive to maximize the ecological value of land, while meeting the needs of landowners. We may accept land as a donation, purchase it, or transfer it to public ownership. We often serve as a broker to identify and negotiate the most effective ownership to protect important lands. We establish conservation easements to preserve special features. For each and every property, we explore available strategies or create new ones to provide permanent protection. Forterra has established a Conservation Agenda for our region, with specific priorities and methods for each type of landscape. Current initiatives include the protection of working forests on the foothills of the Cascades, and the creation of salmon sanctuaries along our region's highest quality rivers and streams.
