Fairview: Community Class on Growing Native Plants

On Saturday, January 20th join the city of Fairview, OR for a free class on growing native plants from live stakes. Learn about what live stakes are, how they are used in restoration, and how you can use them in your own backyard to promote growth of our beautiful native plants.

Free Community Class - Growing Native Plants from Live Stakes for Backyard Habitat Program

Cutting and planting live stakes in winter is an easy and inexpensive way to grow beautiful native shrubs—such as red osier dogwood, Pacific ninebark, and snowberry—for restoration work and your own backyard habitat.
Join us for a hands on live staking class. We will collect and plant live stakes in a stream-side restoration site along Johnson Creek. Learn how we are growing habitat for local wildlife through natural area restoration and our Backyard Habitat Certification Program. Leave with live stakes to plant in your own yard!
Dress for the weather, including rain and muddy trails. Tools, gloves, and snacks will be provided.
Saturday, January 30, 2016, 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM – Gresham’s City Operation’s Center parking lot, 2123 SE Hogan Road, Gresham, Oregon. For more information about this event, or to RSVP, contact Ivy Watson at 503-618-2383 or ivy.watson@greshamoregon.gov
