Return of the natives

Plants that fit with the Pacific Northwest landscape while also helping pollinators do their vital work will be on offer at the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership’s native plant sale this Saturday, Aug. 25.

The event, held at the NW Oregon Restoration Partnership Nursery will be hosted by the group’s coordinator Maysa Miller.

Native plants are grown at the NORP Nursery for distribution among local, state and federal organizations to help with restoration projects – such as the Hoquorton Slough and the Kilchis Nature Conservancy Project.

Plants like goat’s beard, shore pine, salal, cascara, black twinberry, Pacific ninebark, rose spirea and more will all be available for $4 per specimen.

The sale will run from noon to 3 pm at the nursery, located at 6820 Barracks Circle, Tillamook.

Miller will be giving tours of the nursery at 12:30 and 2 pm. There will also be a native garden display to give people a sample of how to plant a successful native garden.

Registration for the event is required at explorenaturetillamookcoast.com.
