Please Join Us to Free the Willamette River of Invasive Plants
Benton SWCD is joining Willamette Riverkeeper and Oregon Parks & Recreation Department to hand pull aquatic invasive species including Ludwigia (water-primrose), Nymphoides peltata (yellow floating heart), Myriophyllum aquaticum (parrotfeather) and others. These on-water events call for volunteers to work in tandem canoes provided by Willamette Riverkeeper. You’ll learn a lot about these invasives and how your participation frees up the water way for native aquatic plant and animal species. Please visit the Willamette Riverkeeper website for more details:

Fall Bulb and Native Plant Sales!

As part of our ongoing efforts to make your purchase of bulbs and native plants as easy as possible, we're shifting to a new way to connect with us and your gardening plans.

You can purchase your native bulb and seeds from us at the Corvallis Fall Festival September 24 - 25 this year. The 2023 Native Plant Sale orders will be available online this September and then available for pick up at the Benton County Fairground early next year. Please keep your eyes open for our August electronic news where you'll find all the details about both native plant opportunities.

Thank you so much for your passion for pollinators and commitment to a thriving Benton County landscape!
