The Nature Conservancy invites anyone interested in preserving the Miami River Preserve to participate in a volunteer work party taking place on Saturday, June 7th. Adjacent to Tillamook Bay, these restored wetlands will benefit northern red-legged frog, chum salmon, peregrine falcon and other at-risk wildlife.
Volunteers will be removing invasive yellow flag iris, primarily any re-sprouts from the patches removed last year, and managing Canada thistle on this work party. The site is flat but we will be walking on un-even ground through tall, dense grass.
Please bring: hiking shoes, daypack, lunch and snacks for the day, one or two full water bottles, layers of clothing to be prepared for any weather–including raingear and a hat and sunscreen. Also bring leather gloves and eye protection (sunglasses or safety gasses), if you have them–if not, we have gloves and safety glasses for you to borrow.
Registration is required. For more information or to register, please contact (503) 802-8100 or HYPERLINK “mailto: email@example.com” firstname.lastname@example.org.
