Tending the Wild: Willow Cutting Outing

Have you ever wondered how those beautiful hand-made baskets are made? Come with us to cut Willow in a respectful and sustainable way, to be used to make special baskets.

NatureConnnect NW's friends Barbara Mickey and Gayla Jay will instruct us in caring for willow over the year in preparation for next year's basket making.

We will confirm the willow location as we go into the season; likely we'll be at the ponds of the Molalla River.

Registration is required to hold your place for this outing and teaching. Contributions to NCNW's Restoration and Conservation Fund are welcome.
