Annual Johnson Creek Clean-Up!


The Johnson Creek Watershed Council invites you to our 12th Annual Clean-Up on Saturday, August 24! 

Come join Johnson Creek Watershed Council for our annual creek clean up! This is part of our ongoing effort to create a healthier and safer Johnson Creek. Each year a team of over 200 people come together to remove ~5 tons of garbage, and celebrate all the weird trash we found and vote for silly (and very important) awards.  Be part of the change with us!

RSVP REQUIRED sign up HERE: http://www.jcwc.org/events/cleanup2019/

Volunteers will meet at 8:00 am at Mill Park in Milwaukie before dispersing in groups to designated sites. Following the Clean-Up, we will be celebrating with a BBQ and awards ceremony (namely the team who found the weirdest trash item and dirtiest volunteer) from 12:30 pm - 2 pm.
