Plant a Tree Volunteer Day

 

 

 

 

Be a conservation hero! Volunteer to help plant native trees and shrubs at Bald Hill Farm. Plant for the health of our community, enhance migratory bird habitat, and support youth in the cross-cultural Willamette River – Rio Laja Mexico education partnership. Your participation alone will allow Rio Laja Mexico students to receive a $1,000 donation to support their environmental education exchange with Corvallis students.

Join Marys River Watershed CouncilInstitute for Applied Ecology, and Greenbelt Land Trust at Bald Hill Farm on Friday, September 28th from 3 – 6 pm. This is an “open house” format so you can come to plant during all or part of this time.

Help Our Youth:

Your help as a volunteer will help us raise the necessary funds for students in Mexico to be able to participate in this cross-cultural environmental education exchange! One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization that supports native tree planting, will donate $1,000 for this Plant a Tree Day event. Marys River Watershed Council, Institute Applied Ecology, and Greenbelt will donate these funds to our Rio Laja Mexico education partners.  Students from Corvallis public schools will be at Bald Hill Farm this school year to learn about and enhance habitat for migratory birds that spend time in both the Willamette and Laja River Basins.  These outdoor field days will be offered in both Spanish and English.
