Aug 27th – Johnson Creek Cleanup and Neighborhood Work Party
Date/Time: Sunday, Aug 28 at 2pm
Meeting Location: Gate at the South end of SW Mozart Tr.
It’s been a while since our last event due to heat and busy summer schedules. This weekend we will meet at 2pm at the Clean Water Services gate at the South end of SW Mozart Tr. and will be working under the tree canopy to stay cool.
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.
