Mt. Hood Pollinator Garden

Roaring River Meadow (2)We are partnering with the National Forest Service to establish and support the Mt. Hood Pollinator Garden in the Clackamas watershed. The garden will feature over 40 species of native plants that provide forage and hosts for pollinators. Seed produced at the garden will be used on forest health improvement projects across over 111 acres of habitat, and the garden will allow the Forest Service to have a continuous and diverse seed bank to use for soil productivity, wildlife habitat, control of exotic weeds, and reestablishment of native plant species.
Stay tuned for our late summer and fall seed harvest outings in the wilderness!


Monarch Monitoring Project: Citizen Scientist Training

We are partnering with the Southern Willamette Forest Collaborative and Forest Service to map and document monarch breeding sites in the western Cascades , and we need your help! In 2018, we surveyed over 500 acres of pinegrass habitat in the Rigdon area for heartleaf milkweed and monarchs with volunteers spending over 95 hours in the field. This effort located 15 monarch breeding sites, expanding our knowledge of monarch habitat availability and use in the region and extending the range heartleaf milkweed, which previously had not been documented this far north.


Our survey areas are rich in plant and pollinator diversity, and because they are off the beaten path they are rarely visited by humans. This is a great opportunity to help us collect data while exploring a habitat type that is unique in the western Cascades. As a volunteer, you will recieve training in plant and butterfly identification, and backcountry orienteering. 

Training Sessions TBA


Habitat Restoration Work Parties in Whilamut Natural Area

You can help restore seasonal wetland and prairie habitats in Alton Baker Park by dropping by during our next work party:

Volunteers will make various habitat improvements at the CILOS restoration site, such as planting native wildflowers, rushes, and sedges and removing invasive plants.We provide refreshments, gloves, tools, and instruction. No experience is necessary and all ages are welcome.  


Our meeting location is just north of the Knickerbocker Bridge in Alton Baker Park along Pre’s Trail. You can enter “Walama Restoration Project Site” in Google Maps for directions, and please note this is walk/bike access only.

You can learn more about the CILOS restoration site here.
