Native Plant Walk
Join the Native Plant Society of Portland (NPSO-PDX) on a wintertime outing to learn about native plants in Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, a beautiful slice of nature nestled along the east bank of the Willamette River in Southeast Portland. You will have an opportunity to become familiar with characteristics as well as ecological and ethnobotanical roles of a wide array of species commonly found among the wetlands and bluffs of the Willamette River, and learn about restoration efforts underway at this site. Participants will be split into three small groups led by the collaborating hike leaders Claire Carder, Brenda Hamilton, and Zak Weinstein. The refuge is easily accessible by bike and public transportation. Walk will be held rain or shine.
Attendance is free, and membership in NPSO is not required to join this outing.
