On Saturday, September 21 the CSP teamed up with SOLVE, local residents and members of Girl Scout Troop 18 from Capital Hill Elementary to tend to the shrubs and trees planted last fall and winter. We removed piles of reed canary grass, nightshade, clematis, and especially Himalayan blackberry from the planted area.
And then we mulched it all thoroughly, thanks to the giant pile of chipped wood that was provided by the golf course staff (PP&R).
Thanks again to all the volunteers, SOLVE, the Johnson Creek Watershed Council, and the Portland Parks and Recreation staff at the Eastmoreland Golf Course for helping this section of the creek become better habitat for all of the creatures that make their home here!
