It’s almost planting season in the Willamette Valley! After a brief hiatus from volunteer activities during September, we are excited to announce a new series of fall volunteer events! Join us out in the field to help put more native plants on the landscape, and contribute to the recovery of ecosystems across Oregon. All are welcome!



We will be holding volunteer events throughout the fall season from the Eugene Wetlands to Marys River Watershed, and carpooling from our office may be available.
