Plant a tree on Saturday at White Oak Savanna

Planting oak seedlings at the White Oak Savanna is on the agenda for Saturday’s Take Care of West Linn Day.

Organizers are hoping to have plenty of kids and adults on hand to plant more than 100 seedlings to be donated by Collier Arbor Care.

On Friday, a crew will prep the planting area by ripping out holly, hawthorne and other undesirable plants.

If you plan on taking part, be sure to wear work clothes and shoes and bring a shovel and gloves.

Volunteers will be treated to a barbecue once the trees are in the ground.

There is a possibility that footage taken during Saturday’s seedling planting will be used on an episode of Steve Amen’s Oregon Field Guide featuring the White Oak Savanna.

The event will run 9 a.m. to noon at 2425 Tannler Dive. For information, call Roberta Schwarz at 503-723-5015.
