Powell Butte Lower Floodplain (SE Portland)
March 3 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Due to popular interest, this event is now full and closed for groups. Please consider any of our other planting events that remain open. RSVPs are not required for individuals or groups of 4 or fewer — you can simply show up!
This planting in SE Portland is part of Johnson Creek Watershed Council’s “Watershed Wide Event.” Come plant native trees and shrubs to help restore the Johnson Creek Watershed’s native habitats, improve water quality and reduce the amount of stormwater entering the creek. Lunch will be provided at an afternoon celebration event and costumes are welcome. This project is in partnership with the Johnson Creek Watershed Council and Portland Parks & Recreation.
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!
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 out there!
