Joyfully Connecting Our Community with the Wonder of the Refuge

Chicken Creek Christmas Tree Placing

  • March 30, 2024
  • 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • Tualatin River NWR North Entrance

Registration is closed

Want to give recycled Christmas trees a new life as fish habitat? Join Friends of the Refuge and Trout Unlimited in placing Christmas trees donated by Cornell Farms in the National Wildlife Refuge’s restored Chicken Creek!

Woody debris in streams provides food and shelter for salmon, lamprey, trout, and other native species. Trees also help diversify stream habitat, slow flows, and decrease water temperatures. By volunteering you will give Chicken Creek and its fish a helping hand! We will also be installing native plants near the creek to enhance wildlife habitat. 

No prior experience is necessary. Training, gear, tools, and snacks will be provided. This project will involve navigating uneven terrain, stooping, and lifting up to 15 lbs.

Advance registration is required. We will meet at the Refuge's Wayside/North entrance parking lot. Questions? Contact
