Beaver Surveyor Orientation 2019

August 8 @ 5:45 pm - 9:00 pm

We are looking for the next Community Science superstars for the Johnson Creek Watershed Council’s fourth year of Beaver Surveys! For one survey day, each team of 2-3 volunteers will walk a 1-mile long reach of the creek to map and collect data on beaver dams and other signs of beaver activity. For more information, check out our Beavers Surveyors page as well as our “Beavers in Johnson Creek” Story Map for a tour of the beaver dams found in 2016!



Join us for Orientation in August, where we will give you all of the training required to safely conduct the survey. At the end of the field season, your data will help us better understand how we can work with beavers to restore the watershed’s health and function. No experience required, but registration is – PLEASE REGISTER BELOW!

  • WHEN: Thursday, August 8 2019, 5:45pm-8:30pm
  • WHERE: All-Saints Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 4033 SE Woodstock Blvd., Portland, OR 97202
    ***Our entrance is on the side closer to Woodstock and SE 41st (see HERE).

  • ex. I've volunteered at a JCWC planting event; someone shared it on Facebook; I got on the email list at a community event; etc.
