(Cloverdale, Oregon) - Ever wanted to make your own holiday wreath with native trees and shrubs? This December, free workshops along the Oregon coast - sponsored by Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge - allow you to take home a new skill along with a beautiful, fragrant wreath.

U.S Fish and Wildlife volunteer and master wreath maker Lee Sliman will be heading up this special event that takes the whole “local” movement to new levels on the Oregon coast. The workshop entails crafting wreaths using greens from native species, including Western Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock, Sitka Spruce and Salal. Discover which materials make the longest-lasting wreaths - and pick up a bit of natural history along the way. All wreath-making supplies will be provided. Gloves are recommended.

Choose from three dates, with one in Lincoln City and the other two close to Pacific City.

December 6 is at the Connie Hansen Garden Conservancy from 12 - 2:30 p.m. ($5 donation to CHG). 1931 NW 33rd Street, Lincoln City.
