Have you ever wondered what is going on behind the scenes in a “certified backyard habitat?”
Would you like to see, first hand, examples of how others design their landscapes and combine native and ornamental plants into gorgeous gardens?
Well, now you have your chance!
Oak Grove Open Garden Tour
Join the Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District and our partners at the Backyard Habitat Certification Program on Saturday, Sept 15, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. for our first open garden tour in Clackamas County.
This event will feature the gorgeous, gold-certified yard of Patricia McMackin. Patricia’s oversized lot features seven towering Oregon white oak trees. These magnificent trees are complimented by a native oak-scape which includes more than 30 species of appropriate native plants in their understory.
The property also features eighteen raised beds for vegetables and fruit, a solar greenhouse, an 80-square-foot treehouse for the kids, fourteen beautiful heritage chickens, two dogs, and hundreds of mason bees. You are invited to come and informally tour the garden, ask questions, and learn all about the Backyard Habitat Certification Program.

The Backyard Habitat Certification Program in Clackamas is a collaborative effort of the Audubon Society of Portland and Columbia Land Trust, with financial support from Clackamas Soil & Water Conservation District and Oak Lodge Water Services.
