The Nature Conservancy invites anyone interested in preserving Miami River Preserve to join a volunteer work party starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 30.
Adjacent to Tillamook Bay, these restored wetlands will benefit northern red-legged frog, chum salmon, peregrine falcons and other at-risk wildlife. Volunteers will plant native species in a restored wetland area. The work requires volunteers to hike off trail and explore uneven ground. Kids are welcome to join but must be accompanied by an adult.
Bring hiking shoes, a daypack, lunch and snacks for the day, one or two full water bottles, and layers of clothing to be prepared for any weather (including raingear, a hat and sunscreen). Also bring leather gloves and eye protection (sunglasses or safety glasses) if you have them; if you don’t, we have gloves and safety glasses to borrow.
