NORP Volunteer Potting Parties

Supporters of CSWCD are invited to volunteer at upcoming Northwest Oregon Restoration Partnership (NORP) potting parties. NORP provides coast specific native plant material for partners throughout the region, including CSWCD. As part of the partnership, we join with other partners and supporters during periodic volunteer events.

The next potting parties are:

Friday June 9th

Friday June 23rd

Friday July 14th

Please RSVP (so NORP knows how much pizza to order!) by registering through this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/potting-party-days-tickets-32700771889. Invite anyone and everyone to come along!

The event will be from 9am to 3pm.  Please show up anytime within that time frame to lend a helping hand.  The event will occur rain or shine.  We will be undercover if it does rain. Bring gloves, water, and rain gear.

The address is 6820 Barracks Circle, Tillamook OR 97141.

Since the nursery is on OYA correctional facility property please let Maysa, the NORP coordinator, know if you plan to bring any minors (Maysa@tbnep.org).  This will dictate whether she can have the OYA Youth Crew helping the event run smoothly.

Finally, make sure to let Maysa know that you are volunteering on behalf of CSWCD!
