Friends of Trees is partnering with SOLVE and the Clackamas River Basin Council to offer free streamside restoration to landowners along Rock Creek, a tributary to the Clackamas River. The Rock Creek Partnership is funded by Clackamas County Water Environment Services, on behalf of Clackamas Service District No. 1.
This planting season we are also wrapping up a multi-year partnership with the Oregon Department of Transportation, Metro, East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District, and many others to plant trees along the I-205 Multi-Use Path. The 16.5-mile path parallels the freeway and is used by cyclists, pedestrians, and TriMet travelers. It crosses many of Portland's most culturally diverse neighborhoods.
Green Space Initiative
Friends of Trees' Green Space Initiative guides volunteers at watershed restoration projects throughout the Portland-Vancouver and Eugene-Springfield metro areas.
Since October, hundreds of volunteers have already planted more than 20,000 native trees and plants. And more plantings are scheduled this week! We hope you'll come see how fun and rewarding it can be to plant with others in the community.
You can find locations and times for these events on our Portland-Vancouver calendar and our Eugene-Springfield calendar. Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome. Only groups of 10 or more need to contact us in advance at Volunteer@FriendsofTrees.org.
