Find Us in the Parade!
See you at the 65th Annual Oakridge-Westfir Tree Planting Festival May 4-7th. You can spot the Southern Willamette Forest Collaborative volunteers handing out tree seedlings alongside the Tree Planting Princess float during the parade Saturday May 5th at 10AM!
For the past three years, SWFC volunteers have handed out 1,000 tree seedlings donated by the BLM. This year we will hand out another 1,000 seedlings of mixed Willamette Valley Ponderosa Pine, Incense Cedar, and Douglas Fir.
The parade starts at 10am on Saturday, May 5th, on 1st Street in Uptown Oakridge - we hope to see you there!
