Dig in the dirt and help the native plants take off this winter and spring
Excited about the salmon returning to Crystal Springs, and wondering how you can get more involved?
Every month a fun group of volunteers is gathering to care for the newly restored natural areas in Westmoreland Park and other sites along Crystal Springs in SE Portland.
The events are typically the 4th Sunday of each month, organized by the Crystal Springs Partnership. Anyone is welcome to join. It’s a great way to get outside in this mild weather and help our parks look good.
In December, the group spruced up the “Brannen property," near SE 21st and Umatilla, where a new pocket natural area park was due for a weeding and some re-planting.
In January, the group turned its attention to Westmoreland Park. The natural area was just completed last fall. Volunteer help to head off weeds and nurture the new plants this spring will help Westmoreland Park look great this summer.
Get involved! The next events are Sunday, February 22 (9 a.m. - noon) and Saturday, March 7.
