There will be a Tree Planting this Saturday February 11th from 11:00AM to 4:00 PM to “top off” the Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) cleanup effort at the former McCormick & Baxter “Super Fund” site.
Children are welcome. Native Trees and Shrubs, Gloves, Shovels and refreshments will be provided.There will be shuttle busses running from Portsmouth and Willamette Blvd near the Chiles Center at the University of Portland.
This is an excellent opportunity to see the river, formulate your own vision of what the trail will look like, and meet your North Portland Neighbors. Take the opportunity to talk to the people you are working with about how nice it will be when we can walk and bike through the area on a water level trail connecting Cathedral Park to the Eastbank Esplanade.
Governor Kulongoski and others will speak at noon.
If you would like more information, please contact one of the CORE TEAM or Mikell O’Mealy, Portland Harbor Outreach Coordinator, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality at 503.229.6590 or firstname.lastname@example.org
