Conifers and shrubs native to the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge will be used to create beautiful holiday wreaths. Refuge volunteer and master wreath maker Lee Sliman will be instructing the process at the Connie Hansen Garden in Lincoln City from noon to 2:30 pm on Sunday, December 7.
If you are wanting to make a wreath, but are unable to make the December 7 time, two other events happen at the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge just outside of Pacific City from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on December 13 and 14.
All materials are provided free of charge, courtesy of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and include fresh-cut greens, wreath ring, wires, and ribbons. Bring special decorating items to personalize your wreath if you have them. Pruning shears or gardening gloves are encouraged. The workshops at the wildlife refuge are free; however, the workshop held at the Connie Hansen Garden will ask for a $5 donation to cover the cost of the room rental. Pre-registration is required as space and supplies are limited. Register by contacting refuge volunteer Lee Sliman at (503) 812-6392.
