PCC Rock Creek Floodplain (NW Portland)

January 27 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Friends of Trees is working with Clean Water Services to restore the Portland Community College floodplain adjacent to the school’s campus. This stretch of Rock Creek is rich with wildlife and the native trees and shrubs that we will be planting will help further improve their habitat and buffer the creek from nearby new housing construction. This planting is part of Tree For All, a partnership which has planted more than eight million native plants in the Tualatin River Watershed since 2005! Clean Water Services, Friends of Trees, thousands of volunteers, other non-profits, city partners, and private landowners will be working together this season to continue the success of this program.

Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. The planting will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun!

Looking to volunteer as a group? RSVPs are kindly requested for groups of more than 5 people – click HERE to do so. RSVPs are not required for individuals or groups of 4 or fewer — you can simply show up!

Are you under age 18 and planting without your parent/guardian? A signed youth waiver is required for you to volunteer. We kindly request youth 15 years and younger are accompanied by an adult.

Please contact Jenny or Pablo at (503) 595-0213 if you have any questions or need more information. We look forward to seeing you at our event!
