Come plant native shrubs and trees to create wildlife habitat on this publicly owned golf course in historic Vanport. Heron Lakes Golf Course is a public, municipally owned golf course operated by Portland Parks & Recreation. This 340-acre site contains a full 18-hole course with ponds, wetlands, and natural habitats that provide important ecosystem services in our watershed.
The Columbia Slough Watershed Council and Heron Lakes Superintendent are working together to restore micro-habitats throughout the course. Blueprint Foundation is partnering with the Columbia Slough Watershed Council to lead the restoration plantings on site. We will also have a discussion about the historical context of the site and the Vanport flood before the workday.
Please dress for the weather and wear long sleeves, long pants, and close-toed shoes. We will provide training, tools, gloves, snacks, and hot drinks. This is a family-friendly event, but children under 14 must be supervised by an adult. Be a part of this unique project by registering below!
