Posing with our bags full of Purple Loosestrife

Our Final Team Meeting was a tsunami of interesting activities at the Oregon Coast.

We started our day at Alder Creek Farm to learn about their former farm turned learning garden which is part of the Lower Nehalem Community Trust. We tasted fresh strawberries, learned about their food bank donation program and their school education program.

After lunch we met up with The Wetlands Conservancy to help remove Purple Loosestrife from a wetland in Manzanita. We broke up into teams and carefully removed the invasive plants without shaking their seeds off and bagged them to haul away.

Our next stop was Cannon Beach where we just missed tide pool time, but were still able to meet up with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program to learn about the birds of Haystack Rock.

With one final go-around of reflections, our final team meeting of the 2014-15 year wrapped under the soft hug of a grey oregon sky.
