Your neighborhood is part of the largest watershed enhancement project in Portland's history! All around you, the city is constructing sustainable stormwater facilities, planting trees, and removing invasive plants. Neighbors are doing their part for healthy watersheds by building rain gardens, planting trees, and landscaping with native plants.

Please join in the fun and be a partner for watershed health! Ways to get involved range from hosting a neighborhood event to learning more about how to protect rivers, streams, and watersheds. Select a project below or create on of your own.
