Join Friends of the Columbia Gorge and Oregon Parks and Recreation to plant native vegetation as part of an invasive plant mitigation project.  

Volunteers will plant native vegetation in a section of the campground that was affected by the 2017 Eagle Creek fire as well as in non-fire affected areas. By planting native vegetation, we will backfill the newly created open landscape 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. 

What to Bring: 
  • Lunch and plenty of water
  • Rain jacket and pants
  • Extra warm clothing in case of wet or cold weather
  • A pack to carry your personal gear
