Jackson-Frazier Wetland, Benton County Parks

Students in the Hands-On Science elective have been propagating plants at an incredible rate this year. We currently have several species of native grasses growing in the greenhouse and are looking forward to a big spring outplanting at Jackson-Frazier. In the fall, the Hands-On Science class planted camas bulbs, a historically important food source for the Kalapuya, near the entrance to the Jackson-Frazier boardwalk. Be sure to watch for their beautiful purple blooms early this spring!
