Buy a wreath to help send Portland-area kids to Summer nature camp!

 

Each year, we gather tree prunings from Portland’s parks and recycle them into beautiful, festive evergreen wreaths and garlands.

 

Sales will support scholarships to send Portland youths with limited opportunities to a week-long Summer nature camp through Parks' City Nature program.

 

The camp provides kids with an opportunity to walk a trail, bend down to get a close look at a tree frog, reach up to feel a furry leaf, and enjoy a multitude of other activities in Portland's parks, gardens, and natural areas.

 

Prices start at $20, depending upon size and amount of decoration, and all proceeds support our City Nature program.
