Portland Parks & Recreation is improving Alberta Park with a more ecologically diverse natural landscape. An acre-sized stand of Douglas fir in the center of the park (between the playground and the dog off leash area) has been transformed into a lush understory setting. The Alberta Park nature patch features forest plantings, an accessible gravel path, nurse logs, root wads, boulders and more. These enhancements not only add beauty and natural elements to explore, but improve habitat for birds and other native pollinators.
Help us complete this cool natural space!
Join us on Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM to finish planting the nature patch. Please click here to RSVP with the Columbia Slough Watershed Council.
Special thanks to Portland's Boy Scout Troop 22 for installing a stream bed rain garden to capture stormwater from the basketball court!
