I posted this on the Native Plant Society of Oregon, Portland Chapter's new Meetup site and already have two more people coming--even though I just announced it this morning (Tu). I would love to get a ride to Riverdale School from the West End of Downtown Portland as bus service to that location is not the greatest--esp. on the weekends. Anyone offering can call or text me at 503.512.3364. I'd like to be there by 8:50 AM.
Thanks,
Mary
