it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.

Plant a Wildflower Meadow

Enrich the habitat at Elk Meadows ~ you'll be glad you did
WHAT: Planting Party with Max & Hope
WHERE: Elk Meadows (at the end of Neptune Way off Bayside Gardens Road)
DATE: Saturday, November 12
WHEN: 10:30am to 12:30pm
REGISTRATION: Please sign up for this free event here.

LNCT & City of Manzanita's community park project, called Elk Meadows, is the perfect place for a wildflower meadow of yarrow, asters, and Shasta daisies. Stewardship coordinator Max Broderick will lead a planting party with botanist and volunteer, Hope Stanton. Perennial shrubs like evergreen huckleberry, as well as native dogwood, will also be planted. If you've never been to a planting party, it's a ton of fun and a great way to feel good getting out into nature with friends and neighbors.

Bravo, Emergency Volunteer Corps!

Congratulations to 13 new Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members who were certified in October at Alder Creek Farm by the Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay! If you had a front-row seat to Manzanita's recent tornado, you know how indispensable EVC is.
EVC's Bill Harshbarger (shown above addressing the group) writes, "With the tornado disaster that occurred last week, several of these new CERT members helped Manzanita respond and recover from this disaster. The Alder Creek Farm facility is an ideal facility for conducting our Disaster Simulation exercise."

Thank You, Oregon Youth Conservation Corps!

The Oregon Youth Conservation Corps (OYCC) was created by the 1987 Oregon Legislature to emulate the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930's. OYCC builds strong connections between positive experiences, work skills, personal responsibility, commitment to education, and future employment for Oregon's youth.
This summer eight students from Tillamook High School and the Wilson River School installed elk exclosures, built a burm, and removed invasive plants at a variety of Lower Nehalem Community Trust's habitat restoration sites. OYCC helps local youth practice professional skills and learn about coastal ecology while working on environmental stewardship projects. For more information on working with Tillamook County's OYCC program, please email Shiras Stamps-White or call 503.801.5157
