Stewardship Saturday:

Kelley Point Park

Saturday, March 7th

9 AM - 12 PM

Join the Columbia Slough Watershed Council and Portland Parks & Recreation as we plant native shrubs along the Columbia Slough at Kelley Point Park!

 

Kelley Point Park is located 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 improve Slough water quality where young salmon find refuge on their way to the Pacific.

 

We will meet at the canoe launch gravel lot, about 300 ft after the turn onto Kelley Point Park Rd.

We will be working off-trail on uneven ground.

 

This event runs rain or shine! Be sure to dress for the weather and bring water, rain gear and sturdy shoes. Snacks, tools, training and gloves will be provided.

 

This event is family-friendly! Volunteers under 14 years must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is requested.
