We love to party – and pot native plants!
Each year we receive thousands of bare-root, native plants at the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP) nursery that will be grown out and then used in habitat restoration projects all over northwest Oregon. We need all the help we can get to get them potted up this spring!
Get dirty with us at Potting Party Days this spring, held on the 1st & 3rd Fridays March – May! 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 hunger for pizza – We’re buying!
-Lots of water
Potting Party Days are scheduled from 10:00 am – 3:30 pm on the dates below. Join us for an hour, or the whole day – every little bit helps!
