Rooster Rock State Park –Earth Day-Tree Planting

You won’t want to miss this event! Rooster Rock State Park
located on the beautiful Columbia Gorge on I-84 at exit 25 is
hosting this rain or shine Earth Day Tree Plant. Park entry is
free for volunteers. Volunteers meet at the west park
headquarters in the parking lot area April 26 at 9 am for
instructions and directions.

This is a great family event. We will lend our support by helping plant
400 trees in the clothing required area of the park. We work in
partnership with Oregon State Park staff, Sierra Club members, Safeway
employees, SOLV, and members of Friends of the Historic Columbia Gorge
Highway.
Please wear weather appropriate clothing as this is a rain or shine
event. Park tools are limited and we have been asked to bring our own
garden planting tools, 5 gallon bucket, gloves, and drinking water. No
tools or experience are required.
Volunteers registering with AANR-NW at the event will be entered in a
raffle drawing. Our first raffle contribution is a Henry Yuen watercolor
painting. You can check out Henry’s work at

The event is scheduled from 9 am – 1pm. Following the event we will
gather at the TA Truck stop restaurant in Troutdale for a no host lunch
and social.
Stay tuned for further details as the event date gets closer. If you
would like to volunteer, commit to attending, donate a raffle prize or
have questions contact the event organizers listed below.
