Errol Heights Park (Inner Southeast) – planting & invasive species removal
Saturday, January 19
9:00 AM- 12:00 PM
Join Portland Parks & Recreation and the Friends of Errol Heights Park to complete important ecological enhancement projects at this little gem of a park. Planting native plants provides cleaner air for community members and cleaner water in Johnson Creek - which supports salmon and other native fish. Keep your eye out for beaver, ducks, and other wildlife as you volunteer alongside other community members—everyone welcome, and no experience necessary! Wear long thick pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy shoes. Bring a water bottle, rain gear, and sunhat. Bring rubber boots if you have them; we will also have various sizes that you may borrow. Instruction, tools, gloves, water, coffee/tea, and snacks provided. Children welcome but must be accompanied by an attentive adult.
Meet at: SE 45th & Tenino Dr. Park on SE 45th. Please be aware not to block neighbor’s driveways.
