Stewardship Saturday: Kelley Point Park
Saturday March 23, 9:00am - 12:00pm
Join the Columbia Slough Watershed Council and Portland Parks & Recreation to plant native plants and shrubs along the Columbia Slough at Kelley Point Park!
Kelley Point Park is at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers, and is also where the Columbia Slough meets the Willamette. The park includes over 100 acres of natural areas and developed park amenities (like picnic tables and large grassy fields) and hosts a variety of wildlife, including beavers, otters, deer, ospreys, bald eagles, and the occasional sea lion that has traveled upstream from the ocean. On this day, we will be continuing restoration efforts to improve the riparian area next to the Columbia Slough, which will help to improve the Slough water quality where young salmon find refuge on their way to the Pacific.
Specific location - We will meet at the canoe launch gravel lot, about 300 ft. after you turn on to Kelley Point Park Rd.
