10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Join Friends Stewardship Volunteer Coordinator Mika Barrett and the U.S. Forest Service at this native planting event near the Rowena Pleateau, Oregon.  

Volunteers will plant native vegetation near Rowena Plateau as part of a larger restoration project started in the early 1990’s. The Morehead Fisher location is primarily a restoration site and does not have an official trail. We'll plant Asclepidacae speciose, showy milkweed, to expand an existing planting for pollinators and monarch butterflies. This Gorge site also hosts native seeding, a Camas meadow, barns, and a cemetery.

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! 

We appreciate our volunteers! As a thank you, volunteers are gifted with a free Friends of the Columbia Gorge tech-tee after completing 3 stewardship work parties. For those who have gone above and beyond for the Gorge, volunteers earn a NW Forest Pass after completing 6 stewardship work parties with the U.S. Forest Service and Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
