Volunteer with the Sellwood Gap clean-up - January 15, 2013

Join Portland Parks & Recreation and our partners for a morning of removing invasive plants along the Springwater Corridor Trail.

 

The Springwater Corridor is a multi-use trail, and part of the 40-Mile Loop which was inspired by the 1903 Olmsted Plan. The vision was to have a parkway and boulevard loop to connect park sites. Most of the wildlife found along the Corridor are those species capable of co-existing with humans.

 

After enough invasive weeds are removed, we will be able to spread native wildflower seed to create a more colorful, more diverse, and healthier green space!

 

Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and be ready to get you hands dirty. PP&R will provide gloves, tools, and snacks; you bring a smile and a friend. For more information, contact Marissa Dorais at (503) 823-7016.
