    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, invasive species removal, trail maintenance 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 12:00. 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. Email Habitat Restoration Specialist Sarah Williams at SWilliams@friendsoftualatinrefuge.org with any questions. Hope to see you there!

    Do you have a little one who enjoys being outdoors? Are you wondering what they can do during the rainy season? Bring your littlest naturalist to the Refuge to stomp in puddles and learn to appreciate the wet weather that makes Oregon so green!


    This preschool environmental education program invites children and their families to spend the morning learning about the natural wonders of the Refuge. Volunteer Naturalists will lead nature crafts, share stories, and guide hikes on Refuge trails. The Refuge supplies 'froggy' raingear for the kids, but adults should bring their own. Each date offers a different theme, so Puddle Stompers are encouraged to visit on multiple days.

    This event is free & open to the public, but registration is required.

    Questions? Please contact the Friends Environmental Education Specialist Seth Winkelhake or call (503)625-5944.
