Come celebrate Earth Day by helping us spread mulch around newly planted native trees and shrubs at Luckiamute State Natural Area!
Earth Day at LSNA
Date: Friday, April 22 Time: 1:00 - 4:00pm Place: Luckiamute State Natural Area (North Unit)
We need approximately 15 volunteers to help us move mulch in wheelbarrows and buckets and spread it around selected trees and shrubs. This will help retain water, provide nutrients, prevent weed competition, give these new plants a great start, and improve their ability to survive and grow.
Luckiamute State Natural Area is located south of Independence at the point where the Luckiamute and Santiam Rivers join the Willamette River. Our restoration work at this special site has spanned more than twelve years and aims to restore the health of this area’s unique and important habitat types. Most recently, we planted 158,000 new trees and shrubs on a 60-acre field that will be re-incorporated into the surrounding floodplain forest habitat.

This volunteer event involves walking over uneven terrain and shoveling, using a wheelbarrow and/or carrying buckets of mulch over short distances. All volunteers must sign up in advance!
