Sep 17th – Johnson Creek Cleanup and Neighborhood Work Party
Date/Time: Sunday, Sep 17 at 2:30pm
Meeting Location: Gate at the South end of SW Mozart Tr.
Westhaven neighbors and supporters of our neighborhood creek restoration,
Please join us this Sunday at 2:30 to help with neighborhood Creek Restoration project. We will be meeting at the south end of Mozart Tr and pulling ivy as well as hauling out some of the brush we pulled at our last event.
Thanks and hope to see you Sunday afternoon.
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.
