2019 Creek Crew Training

Jan 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Creek Crew Leader Training

WHEN: Saturday, January 5, 2019 from 10am-3pm

WHERE: Powell Butte Nature Park

Johnson Creek Watershed Council’s Creek Crew Leaders lead groups at restoration events during planting season.

Our Creek Crew Leaders are a HUGE piece of our restoration work at Johnson Creek! We work with thousands of volunteers each year and with a small staff, we can’t function without the community support of volunteers like you to teach and lead in our restoration events! These leaders help guide groups of 5-15 volunteers for our native plantings, invasive species and trash removal parties throughout the year. They are also a crucial element of our larger events such as our Watershed Wide Event (March 2, 2019) and the Johnson Creek Clean-Up (August 24, 2019).

JCWC’s Creek Crew expands our capacity for facilitating restoration events throughout the year – we couldn’t do it without you!
