ODFW hosts annual plant give-away to benefit wildlife

Feb. 23, 2012

ROSEBURG –Douglas County gardeners and nature enthusiasts can celebrate spring with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s annual plant give-away on Tuesday, Mar. 6. The event runs 9 am – 1 pm at the ODFW Roseburg office, 4192 N. Umpqua Highway.

The free plants provide food and cover for birds, big game, amphibians, reptiles and various mammals. It also gives people an alternative to artificial wildlife feeding. Information on the benefits of natural forage will be handed out.

This year’s free bare-rooted plants are: common snowberry, creek dogwood, Indian plum, Klamath plum, red alder, red flowering currant, vine maple and western spirea. The plants require moist soil with partial and/or full sun. There is a limit of three plants per person.

The ODFW habitat program, Oregon hunters, and federal Pittman/Robertson Act funding pay for this annual tradition. Gardeners and nature enthusiasts who are also hunters can move quickly through an express line upon showing their 2012 hunting license.
