Columbia Springs is always excited to give back to those in the area. “When community supporters Lori & Michael Gordon offered to donate hundreds of their hydrangea cuttings to those who would value them, we knew it was something we wanted to be a part of,” said Kylie Sahota, Columbia Springs communications coordinator.

Planning was tricky due to the ever-fluctuating circumstances, but with the recent drop in positive COVID-19 cases, Columbia Springs staff felt confident that they could safely facilitate a hydrangea pick-up in their outdoor parking lot. Pandemic protocols have not been forgotten. Participants are required to wear a mask and maintain a six-foot distance at all times.

The Columbia Springs hydrangea giveaway will be staffed from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on March 12 & 13 at 12208 SE Evergreen Hwy, Vancouver, WA 98683.

Columbia Springs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on the Old Evergreen Highway in Vancouver, WA. Its mission is to offer a unique setting and educational experiences that foster greater awareness of the natural world and inspire stewardship.
