Salmon inspired the Johnson Creek Watershed Wide event 20 years ago, and now you can be a part of this grassroots habitat restoration movement, too. Our partners need 200 more volunteers, so gather your group and join us!
Together volunteers will restore habitat and water quality at TEN work party events throughout Johnson Creek Watershed. Take part in the action to help build a healthier watershed for your human and animal neighbors by planting native trees, mulching and removing invasive species! And we’re doing all of this… wearing COSTUMES! That’s right – we’re going big this year and we can’t wait to see the crazy, wild outfits you’ll be wearing. So, here are the details…
What: Plant, dig, mulch, weed, and look fabulous
When: Saturday, March 3rd 2018, 8:45am -12pm
Where: 10 locations across the watershed
Why: To build a healthier watershed by planting native trees, fighting invasive species, and connecting people to their environment
This is a family-friendly event. Everyone and all experience levels are welcome. Bring a team of coworkers, friends, or family members. We will provide tools, snacks, and tons of FUN!
Thank you pizza parties and costume contests in 2 locations (12:30-1:30.)
