Calendar of Events: The Sauvie Island Partnership - Jane Harline

Event Date: Oct 9, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Jane Hartline strongly believes gardeners can save the world! She challenges us to put our passion for gardening into a high cause and will offer ideas from her work on Sauvie Island. Jane has lived on the island since the early 70s. As an avid birder and gardener, she is knowledgeable about the island’s diverse and abundant wildlife. Upon retirement ten years ago, Jane began habitat restoration work on the island. She founded the Sauvie Island Habitat Partnership and enlisted help from volunteers, landowners, public agencies, and non-profit organizations.

Among their achievements are planting meadow of wildflowers to restore grassland; surveying ponds to restore habitat for rare aquatic plants, Western painted turtles and native frogs; identifying ideal locations and securing landowner permission for new osprey nesting; and planting mixed hedgerows along the roads as habitat for pollinators and song birds. Join us as Jane helps us put the concept of ‘right plant, right place’ in a larger context. Learn to set the stage for inspiration, relaxation and creature protection in your outdoor living space. *MG education credit*
