Plant native trees and shrubs with SOLV in Gladstone at Goat Island on Saturday, February 26th! We will be working along the Clackamas River from 9:00am to 12:00pm rain or shine, and all tools, gloves and supplies will be provided. By planting native trees and shrubs, volunteers will be lowering stream temperatures and creating an ecosystem that will filter polluted stormwater runoff, improve water quality, provide better habitat for wildlife, and be more resilient to climate change.
Start the New Year off on the right foot. Make your water-friendly resolution to attend a monthly Team Up Talk to learn more about stream restoration.
Do you want to learn tangible ways to improve waterways in your neighborhood? Do you want to meet other people interested in similar things?
Come to a Team Up Talk held on third Thursdays in 2011 hosted by SOLV’s Team Up for Watershed Health program. The talks will cover a different topic each month. Experts in stream restoration will share their knowledge helping you create projects to restore streams.
