Thanks very much to the 50+ volunteers who came to help plant 1600 native wildflowers at Hazeltine Park on December 1!
Fabulous volunteers from the Morse Biogeochemistry lab from PSU, Pack 523 of Brentwood-Darlington, Rivermark Community Credit Union, Confluence Environmental Center, Columbia Slough Watershed Council, and Columbia Land Trust came to support the new pollinator meadow and enhance ecological function of the park. Thanks also to the Hazeltine family, who have been and continue to be champions of the park. They planted a beautiful chocolate mimosa tree in honor of the late great Opal Hazeltine.
Portland Parks & Recreation and the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood association have been stupendous partners in this project. Photos courtesy of PP&R’s Ken Rumbaugh and Courtney Beckel. Thank you so much to the Mintkeski Family Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, and PGE for helping to fund this project.
There will be a follow up event to finish up the work on March 23, 2019! Please sign up HERE!
