You are cordially invited to celebrate Earth Day with the us at Rooster Rock State Park on April 23rd! Mother Nature needs your help planting 500 sixteen inch tall Douglas fir trees. Their longevity will depend upon the care in which they are planted.
You can help – we will work with you so we can be successful together. Our park tools are limited. Please if you can, bring your own garden planting tools, 5 gal. bucket, gloves, water and snack to suit. Families welcome.
The work party will meet west of the park headquarters in the parking lot at 9:00 am and conclude at 1:00 pm or at your convenience. Take I-84 east to Exit 25, then to parking lot close to the Columbia River.
There will be three opportunities to help make the world a better place:
1. There will be an invasive weed removal group.
2. There will be litter pick up in the park.
3. And of course the 500 little baby trees need your gentle care for their survival!
This event is co-sponsored by the Sierra Club, SOLV, Friends of the Historic Columbia River Highway, Oregon State Parks, AANR, and Safeway.
Carpools will leave at 8:30 am from south entrance to Gateway Park & Ride bldg. More info from OR Parks and Rec’s Glenn Littrell at 503-695-2261 ext. 231 or DaveBybee@oregon.sierraclub.org, 360-993-4247.
