Minimum Age:14+

Stewardship Saturday: Wilkes Creek Headwaters

Stewardship Saturday: Wilkes Creek Headwaters

Saturday February 29, 9:00am - 12:00pm

Wilkes Creek Headwaters contains the springs that feed the only free flowing stream in the city that still enters the Columbia Slough. Restoring headwaters habitat, the habitat at the source of a river or stream, is a key part of the waterway restoration process. Formerly a hazelnut orchard and holly farm, volunteer restoration efforts have been focused on enhancing the already existing Western red cedar forest, and adding native trees as well as shrub and forb understory to the rest of this park.

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, but children under 14 must be supervised by an adult. Registration for this event is requested.
