Beach Loop Drive

 Johnson Creek Greenway
    City of Bandon sub-basin drainage

With gratitude for all the earth gives, we hope to continue annually, with citizen volunteers, on the restoration of these wet meadows, formerly the old Face Rock Golf Course.
This year we will be planting 50 Pacific Ninebark, a flowering shrub that supports pollinators, other beneficial insects, birds and other wildlife. Come join us, sign up if you need to park as limited car space is available or just walk or bike over. A volunteer will greet you if you come to help.  Shovels and plants provided, wear your boots!

Making a Pollinator Garden

Each session provides you with instruction, original curriculum handouts and reference materials developed for our local ecoregion, to support you in designing your garden.  These worksheets guide you and introduce suitable native plants for your location and conditions. Classes are held at the nursery, preferably out doors but in case of rain we will meet in the greenhouse.

Session 1         

explains how to “read” or assess the land on which you are establishing a bed, roughly between 100 and 200 square feet for your pollinator patch.  Larger spaces can just repeat the same plant list, assuming conditions are the same.  

 You will receive supportive, original hand-outs to help you develop this plan we call a map.  Use of native plants is emphasized because of the pollinators natural affinity for them as well as the plants drought tolerance, in most cases.

The Milkweed Corridor

 Bandon to Brookings


Every 5 miles, a patch of milkweed planted, ready to host another generation of Monarchs in their breeding territory.  One local effort to keep this species from looming extinction.
