6th Johnson Creek Cleanup and Neighborhood Work Party
Date/Time: Sunday, April 23, 2-5pm
Meeting Location: South end of SW 95th Ave @ Spring Crest Dr.
Hope to see you this Sunday afternoon for another Westhaven Neighborhood Ivy Pull. We are making good progress working our way east, removing invasive English ivy and Himalayan black berries, from along the Creek between SW 95th & Catlin Gabel School.
Meet at SW 95th Ave and Spring Crest Dr. at 2PM.
Hope to see you on Sunday!
Thanks again to Walker Garbage Service for offering to sponsor a drop box for disposing and hauling out all the debris. The Walker family grew up and still live in the neighborhood. They are excited about the project and are looking forward to enjoying the new trail.
Background: Neighbors For Smart Growth (NFSG) was awarded a grant by the Metro Council in 2016 to help restore habitat and plan a nature trail along North Johnson Creek between Catlin Gabel School (SW 90th Ave) and SW 95th Ave. During this project, we will be removing invasive plant species and re-planting native species along the stream corridor. The volunteer time that we record will be credited through the Metro program and will help pay for professional trail planning later in the project.
