Johnson Creek’s “Classy, Not Trashy” clean up a big success


volunteers remove tires  cleaning up the creek

The Johnson Creek Watershed Council’s 8th annual creek clean-up was a resounding success. On August 23rd, about 140 volunteers removed trash from 18 locations in and near Johnson Creek. In all, they collected over 3 tons of trash (wow!), and recycled 30 bags of material and 20 tires.

The event was supported in part through a grant by Environmental Service’s Community Watershed Stewardship Program. Green Lents led the event on behalf of the watershed council. Other partners included Clackamas County Water Environment Services, Metro, North Clackamas Parks and Recreation, Overland Park Coalition, and Portland Parks and Recreation.
