Join the Columbia Slough Watershed Council, the Wilkes community, and volunteers to clean up and plant the beautiful, two-acre Wilkes Creek Natural Area. The Watershed Council, SOLV and the Wilkes community have been restoring this site since 2003, removing weeds and litter and planting hundreds of native plants. The Columbia Slough Watershed Council will be working with the Wilkes community in the coming years to ensure that this natural area continues to thrive with community stewardship activities. We will be planting six different species, including: Snowberry, Twinberry, Dogwood, and Ninbark. Please join us!

Live Staake Planting at Conifer Parks
When: Saturday, November 17th, 9:00 AM - 12:00PM
Where: Conifer Parks, 143 Southeast 205th Place, Gresham, OR 97030
This site represents more than four acres of ongoing habitat restoration efforts. Restoration began in 2010 with a small section of stream-side property; turf and weeds were removed and replaced with several hundred native plants, forming a thin but beautiful riparian buffer along the Conifer Park Home Owners Association walking path. On November 17th, we will be planting the treated areas - live stakes of cottonwood, willows, and red osier dogwood. This will be one our biggest plantings to date where we hope to plant several thousand plants over the next few months. Come on out and help protect and revitalize our watershed!
Tools, gloves, and snacks will be provided, but come prepared for all weather conditions.
