Local Watershed Volunteer Opportunities Abound!

Planting will help protect soils, crowd out weeds, and provide habitat for native wildlife.

Late winter is upon us and the watershed councils and their fabulous volunteers here in Clackamas County are hard at work!

This is the best time of year for planting native trees, shrubs, and ground cover. Watershed councils are terrific at mobilizing volunteers from their community to get a huge amount of work done. Volunteer events in late winter are focused on planting, but clean-up events, trail clearing, and invasive weed removal events are held throughout the year.

The Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District partners with watershed councils in our area by providing annual partnership support grants and other funding. Projects supported by the Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District help to protect drinking water, reduce erosion, and protect native fish and wildlife. Together, we are protecting our natural resources for enjoyment today and for future generations!
