The Johnson Creek Watershed Council is holding a naming contest for a new public natural area along Johnson Creek and the Springwater Corridor Trail. Do you have a winning name idea?
In 2014, Environmental Services completed the Luther Road Sewer and Habitat Restoration Project. The project repaired and protected a six-foot diameter sewer pipe that crosses under Johnson Creek on this 10-acre site. The project also improved habitat for salmon and trout listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Learn more on our Luther Road project webpage.
Now the area needs a new name!
The natural area is accessible by a short trail off the Springwater Trail, and in the future, North Clackamas Parks & Recreation District will convert a portion of the site to a developed park.
We encourage you to visit to see the newly planted native plants, and watch for birds, salmon and other wildlife. Check out a map of the site here.
Click here to submit your idea for the new natural area name. Watershed Council judges will choose the top three entries. If your idea is one of the top three, you’ll receive a framed Johnson Creek nature photograph. The deadline to enter is Tuesday, October 13 at 5:00 PM.
