Host: Tillamook Estuaries Partnership

Event Type: In-person

Help us restore Alder Creek, a tributary of the Nehalem river! Join Lower Nehalem Community Trust, The Lower Nehalem Watershed Council and Tillamook Estuaries Partnership’s Native Plant Nursery on a plant restoration themed morning. We will have a seed ball building activity in the covered barn and will be planting native plants along the edges of the creek. Participants will get to take home their seed balls filled with seeds from the Native Plant Nursery.

There are so many benefits to planting native plants! They provide shade to maintain cooler stream temperatures for salmon, stabilize stream banks to reduce erosion and flooding, store and release water to lower flood risk and more!

This event is part of the Nehalem Estuary Month where we will be featuring events leading up to the MARCH 9th BIENNIAL NEHALEM BAY ESTUARY CLEANUP.
