Volunteers can help spruce up Johnson Creek for spring
Next month, community members will have an opportunity to get out of the house and safely tend local greenspaces throughout the region.
The 23rd Annual Watershed Wide Event is a series of projects at 11 locations around East Multnomah County that has volunteers weeding, planting and mulching along Johnson Creek.
Watershed Wide, hosted by the Johnson Creek Watershed Council, will take place from 8:45 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 6. Things will look a little different because of COVID-19. The work will be done by small groups of 10, and all participants will be required to wear masks at all times.
At the end of the day, participants will get a distanced lunch.
There are still spaces available at some of the sites, including 240th Place in Damascus; Seventh Avenue Bridge in Gresham; Centennial Pond in Gresham; and 108th and Copper in Portland. Sign up at jcwc.org/events/23rd-annual-watershed-wide-event/
The event is open to children. Those who go should bring a water bottle.
