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!
Presentation will be on night sky photography.
Tualatin River Photographic Society (TRPS) provides nature photographers of all skill levels a variety of opportunities to improve their skills and share knowledge with others. TRPS meets on the first Thursday of each month from September-June and offers guest speakers, photo contests, field trips, and educational programs. We welcome visitors and new members.
We are a program of the Friends of the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge.

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.
