Sunday, May 15th be sure to stop by the Foster Floodplain Natural Area, where the Springwater Corridor Trail crosses Foster Road (around SE 106th Avenue). Once again, the Bureau of Environmental Services will be hosting a fun, nature-based Sunday Parkways stop featuring our very popular – and free – FISH HATS!
Sunday Parkways is a great way to get out and enjoy your neighborhood and your watershed.
Learn about Portland’s streams and watersheds, landscaping with native plants, taking care of green streets, tree planting, and reducing pavement.
Enjoy BIRDS (thanks to Audubon’s Birds of Prey and an expert birder from the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership), GAMES, MUSIC (Train River), FOOD (Scoop Handmade Ice Cream and Poblano Pepper), FISH HATS, and FUN!
So bike, walk, or roll on over to see what is happening to improve Johnson Creek and find out how you can get involved. And check out fun and informative activities by the Johnson Creek Watershed Council, Green Lents, Depave, East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District, Zenger Farm, Leach Botanical Gardens, OTAK, and Portland Parks & Recreation.
Mark your calendar for May 15th as your day to get out, gets some exercise and get to know the Johnson Creek watershed. And don’t forget to pick up your fish hat!
