Plant Trees at a Wildlife Refuge with Friends of Trees! (age 6+)*Impact Week*


Friends of Trees inspires people to improve the world around them through a simple solution. Planting trees. Together.
Your help is needed to plant hundreds of native trees and shrubs at the Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve! Friends of Trees provides gloves, tools, breakfast snacks, and guidance -- no experience necessary. We simply ask that you dress for the weather and being comfortable working outdoors in getting dirty (planting trees can be dirty, but fun work! Jackson Bottom is a 635-acre wetland complex on the Tualatin River that is designated as an Important Bird Area for both migrating and non-migratory species.
We provide gloves, tools, breakfast snacks, and guidance, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes or boots (no sandals of any kind, please!) and be ready to have fun!
Please follow the 'Friends of Trees' signs as you arrive. After parking, there will be a 5-10 minute walk to where the planting events is happening.
