The wet weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm and fun at the Miller Woods Earth Day Event. Approximately 200 families and volunteers showed up to enjoy the many activities, presentations and complimentary food!
Talk About Trees, Oregon’s forest Education Program, joined us for the first time this year and their papermaking booth was a huge hit. This unique forest education program is aimed at pre-school through eighth grade students and provides an overview of forest ecology, management practices and forest product use.
Also new this year was a special presentation by Greg Archuleta, a member of the Clackamas Chinook, Santiam Kalapuya, Shasta, and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. As an artist and educator, he teaches about the culture and history of the Tribes of Western Oregon, including ethnobotany, carving, cedar hat making, Native art design, and basketry.
Thank you to our sponsors Head Start of Yamhill County; Outdoor Education Adventures; Natural Connections and Talk About Trees. And a VERY special thank you to our volunteers who braved the weather and worked tirelessly to make this event a success.

The Yamhill Soil & Water Conservation District would like to express a huge THANK YOU to Jackson Family Wines, for sending an unbelievable vineyard crew to work in the Native Plant Nursery at Miller Woods. The timing was perfect as the district needed help planting their bare root plants into pots for the “grow out” process.
Get better acquainted with the local flora of this region and learn about the many ways the Native people of Western Oregon utilized these plants. Greg Archuleta, member of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, will share the history and the importance of our native plants to the Tribes of our region.
