This Saturday, March 2 is a watershed-wide volunteer restoration event for Johnson Creek. Join community members at 12 different sites in the watershed for this opportunity to help improve conditions in the creek, which is home to native salmon, steelhead and other species. Environmental Services is a partner of the Johnson Creek Watershed Council. Working together, we're seeing improvements in the creek's water quality, habitat, and flooding. On March 2, volunteer project sites will support stream restoration by Environmental Services at Crystal Springs, Tideman Johnson Park, Errol Creek and other areas.
