Join the Land Trust for a fall work party to help prepare Camp Polk Meadow Preserve for native plant restoration! We are working on a project to remove weeds and plant native vegetation at Camp Polk Meadow Preserve. Earlier this spring we covered the ground with plastic to heat the soil and "bake" the weed seeds over the summer. This process, called soil solarization, is now complete and we are ready to remove the plastic. We need a few hands to help remove the large sheets of plastic from the area so that we can prepare the soil for planting native plants in October.

Face masks:
Per Oregon Health Authority (OHA) guidelines, all participants (regardless of vaccination status) must bring and wear a face mask during the walk or hike (as soon as you exit your vehicle). Face masks must fit tight to the face, be worn over the nose and mouth, and must be secure enough to stay on during your entire outing. Per OHA guidelines, face shields are not considered a face mask. The Land Trust will have extra face masks for use as needed.
