Echo Valley Nursery, Oregon City OR _DSC9978

Would you like to volunteer at the Backyard Habitat Certification Program’s spring plant sale? This sale is offered twice a year, once in the spring by Columbia Land Trust leads and once in the fall by Audubon Society of Portland.  We are excited to partner with Echo Valley Natives for a third year to offer discounted native plants to Backyard Habitat Certification Program participants. We’re seeking volunteers who would like to answer customer questions, provide general event assistance, and support onsite parking and plant loading. You’ll go home feeling great that you helped distribute thousands of native plants to nearby backyards.
