Volunteer opportunity in Hillsdale neighborhood

Join us on SW Bertha Ct (in Hillsdale Town Center across from the Watershed apartment building) to add native plants (including edible berries!) and remove weeds in this native pollinator hedgerow. This planting area provides critical habitat for birds, bees, and other wildlife, and your help will ensure that it continues to thrive.  

Snacks, tools, safety gear, and instruction will be provided. Sign up by simply calling or emailing the Watershed Resource Center (503-823-2862, watershed@swni.org).
