Get Involved in Conservation, River Clean-Up and more
Are you interested in getting involved in projects that can help keep our rivers healthy ? Want to learn more about our watershed and how you can help conserve water? Here are a few of the opportunities coming this spring.
Get outside and join with other volunteers and the local group Clackamas River Basin Council to plant trees, spread mulch, and remove invasive weeds, all of which helps rivers, fish, animals and our watershed! Saturday Work Parties are scheduled on March 15th and April 26th; email Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit https://clackamasriver.org to learn more.
Regional Water Providers Consortium will host a booth with giveaways and information at the Yard, Garden & Patio Show from Friday Feb 28th – Sunday March 2nd at the Oregon Convention Center. The Consortium will also host their popular Water Lean, Grow Green Workshop on Wednesday March 5th starting at 8:30am at 1120 SW 5th Ave in Portland.

Did you know that flushing prescription drugs is not the safest way to get harmful drugs out of your house? Research shows that household and prescription medications flushed down toilets or put into the garbage have damaging effects on our environment and can contaminate our surface and groundwater supplies. It’s easy to find a “drug take back” location for those expired or unused household and prescriptions medications—just check the Clackamas River Water Providers newsletter for a list of drug take back box locations at https://www.clackamasproviders.org/current-events.html.
