Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service by caring for public green spaces with Johnson Creek Watershed Council! We will be removing invasive species and planting native plants to help restore Johnson Creek in two different public parks.
Access to green spaces and natural areas has been shown to be important to human health and well being. We must continue to work together to care for these spaces not only their ecological value, but also their value to our communities.
We will work at two different sites:
Westmoreland City Park– REGISTRATION IS FULL.
Together with the Crystal Springs Partnership and Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services, we will remove weeds throughout Westmoreland City Park and install some native wetland plants. Parking is available alond SE 23rd Ave between Lambert and Nehalem, and on Nehalem St.
Butler Creek Park– VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED!
With our partners at the City of Gresham, we will be removing invasive species along Butler Creek at Butler Creek Park. We will be meeting behind the play structure and basketball court. Street parking is available along SW 27th Drive.
Please bring a water bottle, clothes that can get wet or muddy, rain gear, and the spirit of service. We will provide gloves, tools, coffee/tea, and light refreshments.
