Transplanting Forest Seedlings: Workshop and Field Trip

This event is no longer on sale.

Sunday October 22

10:00 AM  –  2:00 PM

Join Lee Stevenson, founder of Project Ponderosa, for a hands-on workshop to learn how to identify and transplant a variety of native forest seedlings, including Grand Fir, White Fir, Mountain Hemlock, Snowbush, Manzanita, Mahala Mat, Kinnikinnnick, Indian Paintbrush and more. You’ll learn where to find these native species locally and how to successfully collect and transplant them into your own yard.  


The first half of the program will begin at the Nature Center and then the group will travel to one or more locations within 10 miles of Sunriver for plant collection. Please bring your own pots/containers and shovel if you have. Participants should also obtain a free Forest Products Free Use Permit from the U.S. Forest Service office on Deschutes Market Rd. in Bend so that they may collect transplants during the field trip portion of the program.


This program is limited to 12 participants and early registration is recommended.
