The numbers are in! 4.5 tons of trash were removed by 150+ STELLAR volunteers during our 12th annual Johnson Creek Clean-Up!
Each and every person who came to remove trash is literally a CREEK HERO- thank you all so much!
We also had rad helpers from teams who came out-
Precision Castparts Corp.
Oregon Zoo Environmental Conservation Outreach Team
Oregon Trail Recovery
ROSE Community Development
River Runners and
Boy Scouts troop 22
This event is a big community effort and we have so many people to thank for the success of the day! Also, feel free to tag yourself in the photos HERE. 🙂 🙂
