Join the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood with the Johnson Creek Watershed Council and Portland Parks & Recreation to install hundreds of native, pollinator-friendly plants and cut the ribbon on the new natural landscape with our guest of honor and park namesake, Dick Hazeltine. We will also be planting a tree to honor Mr. Hazeltine’s late wife, Opal Hazeltine, who was instrumental in the development of the original park. (There will be a second event to finish spring planting on March 23rd.)
Saturday, December 9, 9:00 AM-noon
Join Portland Parks & Recreation and the Johnson Creek Watershed Council to plant native plants along Crystal Springs! Native shrubs will help provide shade to keep the creek cool for salmon and other wildlife, and will also prevent erosion of soil into the creek. Wear long thick pants, a long-sleeved shirt and sturdy shoes. Bring a water bottle, rain gear and sunhat. Instruction, tools, gloves, water, coffee/tea and snacks provided. Children welcome, and must be accompanied by an attentive adult.
Meet at: West side of Johnson Creek Park, SE Sherritt & SE 23rd Ave.
