Habitat Enhancement at Kingsley D. Bundy Park
January 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Portland Parks & Recreation and Pleasant Valley Neighborhood Association to plant native plants on this little hidden park next to Johnson Creek.

Check out the Creek in its winter glory, and keep your eye out for wildlife as you volunteer alongside other community members—everyone welcome, and no experience necessary!
