Welcome!     Please visit again soon, as we continue to add new resources regularly.
Dedicated to the enjoyment, conservation, and study
of Oregon's native plants and habitats.
Here's what's new:

Upcoming Field Trips:

* Saturday, May 1, 1PM to 3PM. Gail Baker & Steven Yeager will lead a wildflower walk. Register here (location and handouts available with registration).

**CANCELLED** Saturday, May 8, 10AM to Noon. Ed Alverson will lead a wildflower walk in Zumwalt Park, a relatively undeveloped park on the shores of Fern Ridge Reservoir and a pleasant place for a walk. Mowing of some open grassy areas is delayed to allow the native prairie species such as camas to bloom and set seed. Meet at the entrance to Zumwalt Park off Jeans Road, in Veneta.

* Saturday, June 12th, 10AM to Noon. Ed Alverson will lead a walk in Kinney Park, a small (20 acre) natural area near Spencer Creek with a great deal of habitat diversity, including wet prairie and ponderosa pine woodland. We will explore the park’s late spring flora and examine the recovery of wet prairie following a woody vegetation clearing project. Meet at Intersection of Playway and Restwell Roads, off Gimple Hill Road. In response to public health concerns, group size will be restricted according to County guidelines, attendees must pre-register, wear a mask, keep socially distant along the trail, and attend only if they are free of symptoms. All trips will proceed rain-or-shine so please dress for the weather. Sign up here.

Upcoming Bioblitz Events:

* April 17-22. Glide Wildflower Show Bioblitz

* April 30 - May 3. City Nature Challenge (NPSO Emerald Chapter is a partner)

with the Mt Pisgah Arboretum Virtual Wildflower Festival
