Event description

Description

Get your hands dirty & give back! Join Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP) for Nurturing Natives: Nursery Volunteer Days at our native plant nursery this spring.

Native plants - those that occur naturally in a region in which they evolved - are the foundation of our natural ecosystems and help protect biodiversity. Each year TEP provides more than 75,000 native plants to partners for habitat restoration projects all over northwest Oregon.

Most Nursery Volunteer Days will involve transplanting and potting up bareroot or seedling plants. Other activities may vary based on the date. This is a great opportunity to learn about TEP and our native plant nursery. With each plant you pot, you'll be putting your personal touch on our work to ensure clean water, abundant wildlife, and vibrant communities.

What to bring:

  • A great attitude and willingness to work!
  • Gloves if you've got them
  • Layers - work is done outside or in an open air barn, please dress for the weather.
  • A sack lunch
  • Lots of water

Nursery Volunteer Days are scheduled from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm on the dates below. Join us for an hour, or the whole day - every little bit helps!

  • February 13th
  • February 27th
  • March 12th
  • March 26th
  • April 9th
  • April 23rd

Please select the date(s) for which you would like to register to volunteer. You will receive a confirmation email with more details including driving directions.

ACCESSIBILITY These events are open to all ages* & abilities. Tillamook Estuaries Partnership's Native Plant Nursery is housed at Camp Tillamook, a facility managed by the Oregon Youth Authority.
