In the early 1900’s Johnson Lake was the premier recreation site in its area. The lake was fed by groundwater springs and the water was so clear your could see to the bottom. In our lifetimes, the lake has seen various forms of pollution. A rigorous clean up effort began once the property was acquired by the city in the ‘90s. Continue to contribute to the health of the Johnson Lake natural area with us by casting native plant seeds at our April 2nd work party. It’s a three step process that includes roughing up the soil, casting seed, and covering the planting area with mulch. This is a great activity for families and groups. Join us! 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. Parents should note that there is a water body on this site. This opportunity is open to volunteers 14 years and older, unless accompanied by an adult. Registration is requested. Is your business or community group looking to volunteer? Groups are welcome! Please contact the Council independently if you are registering with 5 or more persons. Activities include: Native Planting. Register online here: http://solveoregon.org/get-involved/events/stewardship-saturday-johnson-lake
