Watershed Discovery Day

Jun 10, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Want to learn more about what a watershed is and what you can do to improve the water quality in one? Pack a picnic lunch, hop on public transit, bike, or drive, and join us Saturday, June 10th at Kellogg Creek Park as we partner with Clackamas Water Environment Services, World Salmon Council, Depave, SOLVE, and Bob’s Red Mill for a family friendly day of learning about and caring for a healthy Johnson Creek Watershed. 

Kick off the day picking up litter with SOLVE around Kellogg Creek Park and then join us at Kellogg Creek Park for family fun. Don’t forget to bring a picnic to enjoy with family and friends. Follow your very own Watershed Discovery Day passport to multiple family-friendly booths to discover how you can contribute to healthy streams, protect wildlife in your neighborhood, and win prizes.  Collect a passport stamp from each booth for a bonus giveaway!

We will have lots of fun booths and activities to visit!

 

Clackamas Water Environment Services believes in a clean water future where all people benefit and rivers thrive. Stop by our booth to have some watershed fun and learn what you can do to become a clean water champion.

 

Learn how you can help protect wild salmon in our rivers, and discover the life cycle of these resilient fish at World Salmon Council’s booth!

 

Practice cleaning up with the litter grabbers and test your skills at finding plastics in sand. Don’t forget the stickers and bookmarks while guessing how much litter is in our jar.

 

Discover the importance of vegetation along the creek as you plant your own seeds in a take home compostable pot and explore the salmon journey with a fun salmon obstacle course at the JCWC booth.

        

Pavement isn’t permanent. The runoff model demonstrates the benefits of depaving, and returning our urban environment to a more beautiful and natural stormwater runoff management system, beneficial to people and the environment.

 

Enjoy a healthy snack from Bob’s Red Mill at the Clackamas Water Environment Services booth.
