On Saturday February 11th, a crowd of excited families swelled around Gresham City Library. This crowd of 42 folks gathered for the long awaited Wild Gresham event, a community talk on wildlife hosted by the City of Gresham and Johnson Creek Watershed Council. The event revealed all the beautiful wildlife that live in Gresham’s Johnson Creek. A local Gresham resident and wildlife photographer, Caz Zyvatkauskas, shared over 80 stunning photos of wildlife she has seen in her backyard overlooking Johnson Creek. She showed photos of a raccoon hunting for crawdads, a river otter playing on the banks, a flying Great Blue Heron, a young salmon swimming in the creek, and a hungry Red Legged Frog eating a worm (pictured above). Johnson Creek is truly alive!
Thank you to Caz Zyvatkauskas, City of Gresham, and Gresham Library. Want to learn more about wildlife? Visit our calendar for upcoming events like these.
