EARTH DAY STEWARDSHIP @ ELK MEADOWS PARK

April 21 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

EARTH DAY ACTION!

STEWARDSHIP @ ELK MEADOWS PARK

APRIL, 21 2024 @ 11:00 AM2:00 PM

Where:  Elk Meadows Park, at the end of Neptune Way, in Bayside Gardens, between Manzanita and Nehalem. (Turn south off of Hwy. 101 onto Bayside GardensRoad. Go to Neptune Way, the last right turn before you reach the Bay. Go to the end of Neptune Way. The park will be on your left).
What We’ll Do:  We will mulch, clean up tree cages and enclosures, chip paths and remove blackberry and scotch broom, helping the Park’s native plants survive by removing competition. (Who knows, you may even see some of the neighborhood citizens after whom the park is named!)
Little ones can try their hand at the giant slingshot, which we’ll use to disperse native seed balls that have been lovingly made by Fire Mountain School students and community members.
What to Expect: We will provide tools and gloves, but you are welcome to bring your own clippers or loppers. Please wear sturdy shoes and long sleeves and be ready for whatever the weather brings! Parking is adjacent to the park and surfaces are gravel, wood chips and grass. We will be using hand tools such as loppers, pruning saws and shovels. There is a raised boardwalk across a small wetland and stairs connecting the upper and lower park areas. This park is owned by the City of Manzanita and stewarded by the Lower Nehalem Trust with the help of the community. There is no restroom on-site but generous neighbors have been known to accommodate if the need arises!  You will be asked to sign the LNCT volunteer waiver to participate in this event.

Statement of Inclusion: We understand everyone learns and experiences the outdoors differently and we welcome collaboration with anyone who needs additional support. We are happy to adjust this event to meet the needs of participants to the extent possible within our capacity. Please get in touch in advance to discuss your personal or group’s needs.

Outreach for this event is supported in part by Tillamook Coast Visitors Association and Travel Oregon Forever Fund.

If you have questions, please contact us at Lower Nehalem Community Trust at lnct@nehalemtrust.org or 503-368-3203.
