Come join Johnson Creek Watershed Council for our annual creek clean up! This is part of our ongoing effort to create a healthier and safer Johnson Creek. Each year a team of over 200 people come together to remove 3-5 tons of garbage, and celebrate and get silly afterwards. 😉 Be part of the change with us!
Note: Please wear sturdy closed-toed shoes you don’t mind getting wet and muddy. Instruction, tools, breakfast fare, BBQ lunch, and water provided.
Children are welcome, and must be accompanied by an attentive adult.
What-To-Bring pro tips: A change of clothes for the journey home and a towel just in case, lawn games to share if you’ve got ’em!
Meet at: Mill Park 6201 SE Overland St., Milwaukie
Tri-met: Bus lines 71 and 33. Taking public transit? We have free bus tickets for you! Bring your used bus ticket to the event and we’ll hit you back with 2 to compensate your travel to and from.
