Join Nearby Nature to pull ivy and cut
blackberries in Wildflower
Hollow, a segment of riparian forest in Alton Baker Park that needs us to get rid of invasive plants so natives can bloom in the spring. Wildflower Hollow is in the Whilamut Natural Area, home to osprey, bald eagles, salamanders, woodpeckers, many other creatures, as well as twelve different kinds of lilies!
Nearby Nature provides the tools and gloves; volunteers provide the
energy and muscle! Please dress in layers for the weather and bring a
water bottle. Meet next to the Alton Baker Park Host Residence on the Water Wise Garden patio at 9 am. Late arrivals are welcome -- just follow signs and sign in at the volunteer table when you arrive. Biking to the clean-up is encouraged and there is a covered bike rack at Nearby Nature.
