It may come as a surprise, but its planting season for the City!
Portland is well known for its green infrastructure, and green street facilities are an important part of that. Planting is the final step in getting the facilities operational and ready to go for the rainy season.
Stormwater hurts the environment and can kill salmon and other critters. Green street facilities use native plants to help filter stormwater and pollutants. They protect water quality in our local creeks, and keep stormwater out of our sewer systems.
