OSU Home Extension Services invites the community to join the Mid-Columbia Family and Community Education Study Groups on their annual Spring Tour, set for May 22.
The tour, “Portland’s Glorious Gardens,” will explore Portland’s Rose Gardens, Japanese Gardens and Chinese Gardens. There will be time for touring and shopping at each stop.
Participants will lunch in the Pearl District and make a stop at Voodoo Doughnut for dessert and pre-placed orders before heading home.
Master Gardeners will provide detailed information about the horticulture, history, and other facets of each garden.
The cost is $55 for FCE members and $60 for non-members, and includes all costs for transportation, entry fees, lunch and gratuity, and membership for non-FCE members.
There will be two pick-up locations: Hood River and Cascade Locks.
Pre-paid registration is required by May 15. Register at the extension office at 2990 Experiment Station Road. For more info contact the Hood River County Extension Office at 541-386-3343.
