Habitat Enhancement at Errol Heights
December 16 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Join the Friends of Errol Heights, Johnson Creek Watershed Council, and Portland Parks & Recreation at the newly renovated Errol Heights Park for a morning of stewardship! We are working to revegetate areas that were disturbed during the recent construction. This park is home to a plethora of wildlife including beaver, woodpeckers, ducks, and dragonflies!
What: Habitat enhancement projects include weeding, planting, mulching, trash pick-up. These needs will change month to month!
When: Saturday, December 16th, 9:00am-12pm.
Where: Errol Heights City Park (directions to site emailed after registration)
What to bring: Bring a filled water bottle and snacks. You’re welcome to bring gloves and tools, if you want to use your own.
What to wear: Dress for the weather! Wear long thick pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy, close-toed shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. Bring a raincoat or a hat and sunscreen, as appropriate.
What we provide: Gloves, tools, and instruction on how to safely use tools. We can also provide bus fare to and from the event. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange bus fare.
Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an attentive adult. This work is around and near prickly plants and can be challenging for young children. We recommend children ages 10 and up for this type of event.
Health and Safety: We will follow current Oregon Health Authority guidelines. Masks are not required, but encouraged in indoor spaces where social distancing is not possible. Stay home if you are experiencing symptoms of any contagious illness or have had recent contact with someone exhibiting symptoms of any illness.
Accessibility: This event may require standing or squatting/kneeling for long periods of time, walking over uneven ground, bending and lifting heavy objects. Bathrooms are available for this event.
