Lomakatsi Restoration Project invites the public to help celebrate spring with Lomakatsi by helping to tend baby plants at the Lomakatsi Jackson Wellsprings Nursery on Sunday, March 19.

Everyone is welcome to come to the free event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and help get Lomakatsi's native plant nursery in shape for the year. "Nothing says spring like getting your hands in the dirt," organizers say. Participants will pot native plants and tending little seedlings that could become future forests.

The mission of Lomakatsi — a word meaning "life in balance" — is to restore ecosystems and the sustainability of communities, cultures and economies.

Pre-registration is requested; go online to lomakatsi.org/commevents. For more information, email info@lomakatsi.org, or call Sheila at 541-778-7356.

The event is sponsored by Anderson Auto Body and Paint.
