Stewardship Saturday:

Johnson Lake

Saturday, March 21st

9 AM - 12 PM

This event has been canceled in accordance with public health


recommendations to reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).


See the announcement on our home page for details.

Johnson Lake has experienced a number of changes over the last century. It was a popular swimming hole until the Vanport flood of 1948, which flooded the lake and made it murky. Since then the lake has experienced increased pollution, but clean-up projects – in fact, the Council’s very first native planting – have helped to restore the property surrounding the lake. Join us as we continue the longterm stewardship of the Johnson Lake natural area!

This event runs rain or shine! Be sure to dress for the weather and bring water, rain gear, long pants, long sleeves, and sturdy shoes. Training, tools, gloves, snacks, and warm drinks will be provided. Parents should note that there is a water body on this site. This opportunity is open to all ages, but volunteers under 14 years must accompanied by an adult. Registration is requested.

Site accessibility: There are dirt pathways along Johnson Lake. The work area will be wooded and uneven. No formal restrooms or shelters are available at Johnson Lake, but there will be a portable restroom on site for volunteer use. **Meet at the cul-de-sac at the end of NE Colfax, off of NE 92nd**
