Event description

Description

Native plants - those that occur naturally in a region in which they evolved - are the foundation of our natural ecosystems and help protect biodiversity. They provide food and vital habitats for native wildlife.

Landscaping choices have meaningful effects on birds and insects, as well as other plants and animals. Natural landscaping, also called native gardening, is the use of native plants, including trees, shrubs, groundcover, and grasses which are indigenous to the geographic area of the garden.

Learn the best plants for incorporating into your landscaping and purchase some to take home during Tillamook Estuaries Partnership's Bringing Back the Natives - Plant Sale & Nursery Tour!

PLANT SALE Plants available at the sale include Cascara, Black Twinberry, Pacific Ninebark, Salmonberry, Red-osier dogwood, Rose Spirea and more. Stock may be limited and specific species are not guaranteed to be available.

NURSERY TOUR A guided walking tour of the nursery facilities will be offered at 1:00 pm. Participants can expect to walk approximately half a mile on mostly level, graveled surfaces.

This FREE event is hosted by Tillamook Estuaries Partnership as part of the Explore Nature series of hikes, walks, paddles and outdoor adventures. Explore Nature partners include volunteer community and non-profit organizations, offering meaningful nature-based experiences highlighting the unique beauty of Tillamook County and the work being done to preserve and conserve the area’s natural resources and natural resource-based economy.
