This Community Restoration Event hosted by Tualatin Riverkeepers at Munger Lane Natural Area on the Tualatin River near Scholls. Munger Natural Area is home to wildlife such as beaver, river otter, mink and red tail hawk. Restoring this natural area will increase opportunities for wildlife to find food and shelter. Planting native plants and removing invasive weeds will reduce erosion and ultimately improve water quality in the Tualatin River.
