Looking for a way to get outside and get dirty for a good cause? Join the hundreds of volunteers who are coming out for the Johnson Creek Watershed Council’s Watershed Wide Event on Saturday, March 7 from 9 a.m. – 12 noon.
This is the 17th year in a row for this epic feat of environmental restoration. This grassroots effort will take place at ten locations across the Johnson Creek Watershed, from southeast Portland to Damascus and Boring. Volunteers will work with the Council and its partners to plant native trees and shrubs, and learn about how invasive plants like ivy and blackberry can affect water quality.
“The Council enjoys planning this event every year and we work hard to ensure that community members that have a blast learning about Johnson Creek while also giving back. It’s a great event for the whole family – with free lunch to boot,” says Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator Amy Lodholz.
To sign up, please call 503-652-7477, or go to Johnson Creek Watershed Council website.
Special thanks to event supporters: City of Gresham, Clackamas County Water Environment Services, Crystal Springs Partnership, East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, Friends of Tideman Johnson Park, Friends of Trees, Portland Parks & Recreation, and Portland Bureau of Environmental Services.
