Get Involved!

There are many opportunities for you to get involved with our project. Throughout the year we will have monthly community workdays to maintain previous plantings as well as to prepare areas for future plantings.

And, like most non-profits, we can always use financial donations. Please see the section below, Make a Donation, for more information.

Tree Plantings with Elementary School students

We will conduct 10 planting days throughout this current planting season ( 11/17 - 3/18) with students from both Kelly and Lent Elementary Schools.  During these planting days we will plant over 2000 native trees, shrubs, grasses and wild flowers in natural areas along the Lents portion of the Corridor.

Community workdays

Community workdays are held at least once a month (except Dec and Jan) to prep future planting sites and maintain previous plantings. This involves watering all plants for at least the first two years as needed, and weeding, mulching, and invasive or non-native plant removal for at least three years.

Work days are generally held on the 2nd Saturday of each month – but call first (503-234-4947) to find out where we will be working that particular week.
