Work Parties

Clackamas River Basin Council hosts weekend work parties. We might be pulling invasive weeds, recycling Christmas trees in a side channel, or cleaning up a creek. During the planting season from December through March, work parties invite individuals of all ages to experience planting native trees and shrubs while learning about how we can improve watershed health. Check out our upcoming volunteer opportunities!
