PORTLAND, Ore. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites the public to join its park rangers for the annual Earth Day event at The Dalles Dam Visitor Center and Seufert Park April 27.


This year the park rangers will host a spring clean up in the historic Seufert rose garden.  This unique turn-of-the century garden is home to more than 90 varieties of antique roses. Volunteers are needed to help pull grass, weeds and dead head, and offer a little tender loving care. “A bit of spring cleaning can go a long way to help a small garden flourish and maintain its health and beauty throughout the year,” Park Ranger Amber Tilton said.


Registration will begin at 12:30 p.m., and work will conclude around 3 p.m. Guests are invited to enjoy a tour the dam’s visitor facilities, including the east fish ladder and powerhouse, afterwards.


Gloves and other gardening tools will be available; however volunteers are welcome to bring their own. The Corps recommends volunteers bring comfortable clothing, a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, long pants and sturdy closed-toe shoes.


Earth Day is a nationwide volunteer initiative promoting conservation and awareness of environmental issues. Since its establishment in 1970 it has grown internationally. To learn more about Earth Day, visit
