We just announced the new projects for this year’s Community Watershed Stewardship Program (CWSP) grants!
In related news, one of last year’s CWSP projects finished up in May with a community celebration.
St. Mary Ethiopian Church in SE Portland has a new rain garden that soaks up stormwater runoff, filters pollutants and help keep the church from flooding. They started off with a pavement smashing party last fall, held fundraisers, and brought together a lot of new friends and partners in the Lents neighborhood to build and plant the facility. It’s true, Portland’s rain really does bring people together!
Check out this great story from the East PDX News: Rain garden saves church, helps Johnson Creek.
Thanks to all who came out for the celebration in May, and to the partners who made this project a success.
