Join Friends of the Columbia Gorge and Oregon Parks and Recreation to plant native vegetation as part of the 2017 Eagle Creek fire restoration initiative.Volunteers will work at the Tooth Rock trailhead to plant native vegetation where hazard trees were removed. By planting native vegetation, we will backfill the newly created open area to mitigate the establishment and spread of invasive plants.
No experience is necessary and all tools will be provided. Please come dressed for the weather and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes. Get ready to have fun!
As a thank you, volunteers earn a NW Forest Pass after completing 24 hours of service on U.S. Forest Service and Oregon State Parks lands.
