  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Help needed to rescue native plants along the new Salmonberry Rails-to-Trails project! The goal of this event is to rescue small native trees and plants growing along the discontinued railroad tracks outside Banks, OR. We will dig them out of the tracks, and they will be replanted at a later date at restoration sites around Washington County. Your help is needed to save these native plants before the paving begins! Please note: we will not be planting at this event.

Please arrive by 8:45am to sign-in and be assigned a work crew. The event starts at 9:00am. We provide gloves, tools, and instruction-- all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather wearing sturdy shoes or boots, and be ready to have fun!

How do I register? Fill out the registration on our calendar! Individuals and groups welcome!
