    • Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge

    Looking to get involved on the refuge and want to get your hands dirty? Come out to our Second Saturday Restoration Work Party! Each month we pick an activity such as caring for trees, planting, removing invasive species, maintaining trails, etc.

    We meet at 8:45 am at Refuge HQ and then head to our work site at 9:00am, with work wrapping up at 12:00pm. These work parties are a great opportunity to see portions of the refuge that are closed to the public, as well as a great way to get an understanding of what's going on at the refuge from the Field level. 

    Please wear sturdy shoes and bring a water bottle. E-mail Habitat Restoration Specialist Nathan Kossnar at Nathan_Kossnar@friendsoftualatinrefuge.org with any questions. Hope to see you there!
