Local groups are working hard to improve Beaver Creek’s health. Cities build rain gardens on streets to capture and filter pollution from cars. This cleans runoff before it enters the creek.
Mt. Hood Community College is working on a campus improvement project to install rain gardens. This will help the 57-acre campus maintain their Salmon Safe certification.
The MHCC Salmon Safe projects will kickoff on May 19th with a volunteer depave event. We are partnering with Portland-based nonprofit organization Depave to rip up pavement. Asphalt will be pre-cut before the event, then volunteers will help remove the asphalt, making way for construction of new curbs over the summer and the planting of rain gardens in fall. This is a family friendly event with activities for all ages. No experience is necessary, and all tools, equipment and breakfast and lunch are provided.
Join us Saturday May 19th from 9am – 1pm to be a part of this historic depave event! Register here
