COVID-19 UPDATE: The Boardman River Nature Center will be CLOSED starting Monday, March 16th until further notice. All programming through April 6th has been canceled. District staff is working remotely. We appreciate your understanding, and please check back for the most up-to-date information. 
Schedule of events:
-Seedling Sale presentation & ordering
-Seed Swap
-Seedling and gardening experts on-hand to answer your questions


This is the time of year we all wish we were out playing in the dirt. Cure your cabin fever and join us to explore landscaping for habitat as well as learning tricks to growing the very best veggies. Hear about the species of native baby trees and shrubs available through the GTCD Seedling Sale (with a chance to pre-order!) and bring non-invasive seeds (experts can check them for you!) to share with your friends and neighbors. PLUS get expert advice, whether about selecting the right native shrub for that tricky spot, where to buy native plants the rest of the year, or how to keep the aphids off your zucchini. Bring your leftover seeds from last year and your questions! A brief presentation starts at 10am, open-house starts at 10:30am.
Cost:  FREE
Ages:  Adults, all ages welcome
Will anyone in your party require accommodations? Such as an Interpreter, wheelchair accessible seating, etc. *Interpretive services will require notification by March 7.
