Looking to get involved in restoring our watershed? Consider volunteering with CRBC!

In addition to the in stream and riparian restoration projects we have going on across the watershed, CRBC also hosts Saturday Work Parties. Typically held 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. When we aren’t planting, we might be pulling invasive weeds, recycling Christmas trees in a side channel, or cleaning up a creek – check out our upcoming volunteer opportunities below!

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

High Rocks Cleanup – 4 dates
Clackamas River Basin Council partner, SOLVE, has scheduled monthly cleanups at High Rocks over the summer.

Help clean up the river banks and surrounding area. High Rocks is a popular river destination that sometimes is loved too much. You can help remove litter to keep it from being washed into the river and endangering wildlife.

Dates and times: June 15, July 20, and Aug 17, from 10 am to noon.

These SOLVE work parties will meet up on the pedestrian bridge crossing the river, at 10 82nd Drive, Gladstone, OR. Located right next to the Gladstone DMV.  You can register online at www.solveoregon.org.

The High Rocks work parties are sponsored by Clackamas County Water Environment Services (WES).

Ever Wonder Where Your Recycled
Xmas Tree Goes?

Some discarded Xmas trees are used by Clackamas River Basin Council to provide refuge and habitat for young and migrating fish. Volunteers place trees in side channels and streams. Take a look at what’s under the surface.
