Opportunity Details

Oak Woodland Land Tending at Westlake!

 

Happy Earth Day! Join us for a morning of land tending and restoration at Westlake HOA Oak Woodland. This beautiful oak woodland habitat is home to 300-year-old white oaks and a diversity of wildlife! We will be pulling invasive ivy, shiny geranium, and other invasive species. We will also pick up trash along creeks, wetland habitats, and pathways. Depending on the weather, we may also plant native species for ecological restoration. Volunteers will learn about Oregon White Oak ecology, indigenous land tending, and the cultural value of Oak ecosystems. Pulling weeds requires volunteers to be able to bend over or kneel, but we can arrange alternate projects for those with different abilities or mobility issues.  We will be working outdoors so please dress for the weather (long pants and layers are recommended). Sturdy, closed-toed shoes are required. Bring your own water bottle. Tools, extra gloves, and training will be provided. Please bring any medication you may need (Asthma Inhaler, Epi-Pen, etc.) Children are welcome if accompanied by an attentive adult. Unfortunately, there is no bathroom on site. Please stop by, learn about oak woodland ecology, and lend a hand as we enhance this unique oak woodland! Thank you to Oregon Conservation and Recreation Fund and Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District for funding this project!
