STEWARDSHIP DAY – Winter Planting Event at Cape Lookout State Park Feb. 6

STEWARDSHIP DAY – Winter Planting Event at Cape Lookout State Park Feb. 6

Help revitalize the campground at Cape Lookout State Park with Oregon State Parks and Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS. We are looking for volunteers to help us plant native vegetation in and around the campground. These plants will act as a barrier between campsites while providing beneficial services to wildlife and the ecosystem.

Lend a hand at digging, plantings, removing non-native vegetation in the restoration areas, and mulching around newly established plants.

If possible, we ask participants to provide their own:

work gloves

hand pruners

shovels (some will be provided by the park)

appropriate gear for the Oregon Coast in February

lunch

reusable water bottle

mug or thermos for hot beverages

Be prepared for dynamic, winter weather on the Oregon coast. This event is family-friendly. Participants are welcome to come for all or any portion of the day that works for their schedule.

This opportunity is an EXPLORE NATURE take-action event! Explore Nature Series events are hosted by a consortium of volunteer community and non-profit organizations, and are meaningful nature-based experiences that highlight the unique beauty of Tillamook County and the work being done to preserve and conserve the area’s natural resources and natural resource-based economy.

We understand everyone learns and experiences the outdoors differently and are open to working with anyone needing additional support. We will adjust the restoration duties to meet the needs of participants, however, we have limited capacity. Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to accommodate your needs and/or find a way for you or your group to have fun participating in our events.

When: Tuesday February 6th, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Location: Cape Lookout State Park, 13000 Whiskey Creek Road Tillamook, OR 97141

Pre-registration will speed up event check-in and help us gather needed supplies.
