Press Release below is by Sparrowhawk Native Plants. The North Clackamas Watersheds Council is a partner of Oak Lodge Water Services working to protect the health of our local rivers and streams.
Sparrowhawk Native Plants partners with community organizations to provide over 100 species of habitat-friendly and climate-resilient native plants to local gardeners. This spring, we’re teaming up with Leach Botanical Garden, Friends of Tualatin Hills Nature Park, Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, Friends of Baltimore Woods and North Clackamas Watersheds Council . By our powers combined, over 40,000 native plants will take root and about $20,000 will go back to these inspiring community partners. Order plants starting on Feb 26, 2023 at 9:00 am for April or May pick-up!
How it Works
- Order Plants Online between Feb 26 - March 26 (or until we sell out, whichever comes sooner): Browse profiles of more than 100 native plant species from the comfort of your couch. Filter by sun, moisture, and more to find the right plant for the right place in your yard. Some species may sell out quickly, so we recommend getting your order in early! At checkout, select your pick-up location, date and time.
- Pick-up Pre-ordered Plants in April or May at a Pop-up Near You: We'll look forward to seeing you at one of the four pop-up locations in April and May (find details + pick-up addresses on our website). These pop-ups are large, outdoor, parking-lot style events.

About Sparrowhawk Native Plants
We're a new kind of nursery. Instead of a traditional brick-and-mortar, we offer online sales of premium-quality native plants coupled with neighborhood pop-up events each spring and fall for picking up your order. Each pop-up is hosted in partnership with a different community organization that gets a percent of the proceeds. Through this innovative model, you're planting the right plants in the right season for our climate, scoring unbeatable prices, supporting insects and wildlife, all while giving back to your community!
