Habitat Enhancement at Errol Heights
February 17 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 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: Errol Heights Habitat Enhancement projects include weeding, planting, mulching, and trash pick-up. These needs will change month to month.
When: Saturday, February 17th, from 9:30 am – 12:30pm
Where: Errol Heights City Park (directions 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.
We will provide: Gloves, and all necessary tools, plus coffee and snacks. 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 wading in water greater than 2 feet deep (see site descriptions for details; not all sites require wading), standing for long periods, walking over uneven ground, going up or down steep slopes, bending, and lifting heavy objects.
