Saturday, June 3 - 9:00 a.m. - Noon, Bankston Nature Preserve
The Tualatin River is a National Water Trail, and we're pleased to participate in National Trails Day by hosting a restoration project at the beautiful Bankston Nature Preserve along the Tualatin River west of King City.
Volunteers will work to eradicate invasive species, including Canada and Bull thistle, Trace Himalayan blackberry, Shiny geranium, and Trace English Ivy. The work will help recent plantings of native Red flowering currant, Oregon grape, and Snowberry thrive.
The Bankston Nature Preserve is a vital riparian zone protected by a conservation easement held by Columbia Land Trust. It helps form a diverse wildlife corridor that includes the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge and Metro's Beef Bend and Heritage Pine Natural Areas.
Upon registration, volunteers will receive specific directions to the Preserve.
