Stewardship Saturday: Columbia Park Nature Patch

Stewardship Saturday: Columbia Park Nature Patch

Saturday January 25, 10:00am - 1:00pm

Help us build a “nature patch” at Columbia Park! We’ll plant native trees and shrubs to create habitat for pollinators and birds at this North Portland park. Native plants require less watering and chemicals to thrive and create healthy wildlife habitat for pollinators while discouraging invasive species. Nature patches help manage stormwater naturally and improve the health of our rivers and streams.

Please dress for the weather and wear long sleeves, long pants, and close-toed shoes. We will provide instruction, gloves, tools, snacks, and warm drinks. This event is family-friendly, but children under 14 must be supervised by an adult. There is an ADA accessible restroom at the park. Please reach out to the Volunteer Coordinator to inquire about site accessibility:
