Two Opportunities to Help Plant Nature Patches with Portland Parks!

If you love the Hazeltine Park Nature Patch, there are two opportunities to help plant them in other parks: January 25th and February 1st!

Columbia Park

What: Install lots of lovely native plants to complete this natural garden
When: Saturday, January 25th from 10am until 1pm
Where: Meeting at the Columbia Park Cottage – 4339 N. Lombard Street

Help put the finishing touches on the Columbia Park Nature Patch – a new natural landscape for pollinators and people!

Parks staff have been busy renovating the Columbia Park landscape to create a lovely natural garden space. The Columbia Nature Patch features native and ornamental flowering shrub beds amidst a network of paths with logs, boulders, and habitat elements throughout. Learn more about the project here. RSVP for this planting here.

Lents Park

What: Install lots of cool native plants to get this garden growing
When: Saturday, February 1st from 10am until 1pm
Where: Meeting at the Lents Park Playground – SE 92nd Ave and SE Steel St

Portland’s largest nature patch yet is in the works and nearly ready for plants. Please join Portland Parks & Recreation, Green Lents, and the Johnson Creek Watershed Council to plant this lovely ribbon of pollinator-paradise flowing through the park.

Parks staff have been transforming the southeast corner of Lents Park with fresh compost, tons of boulders, new trees, and habitat features to create a vast natural garden stretching from the forest understory to upland meadow with much in between. Learn more about the project here.  RSVP for this planting here.
