Water! 2011 Event: Saturday, October 22


Please join us at the 2011 Water! Event sponsored by the East Multnomah County Soil and Water Conservation District. We'll have an information table and will be offering a workshop for property owners interested in having an ecoroof of their own. 

WATER! 2011 dives into today's most pressing concerns about water resources by exploring how our everyday choices and actions are connected to local rivers, lakes, estuaries and beaches. This engaging community event also investigates some of the less-obvious things that we can all do to improve the health of local waterways for fish, wildlife, and people.
