Restoring headwater habitat, the habitat at the source of a river or stream, is an important part of the waterway restoration process. Wilkes Creek flows into the Columbia Slough, so its protection is part of a greater effort to keep the Slough healthy. We’ll plant native plants and protect them with mulch. We’ll also care for previously planted plants by weeding and mulching and removing invasive species like English ivy and Himalayan blackberry. Students in our SERVE (Students Engaged in Restoring Vital Ecosystems) program have adopted this site for their field science experience. Parents and students are encouraged to visit the site again during this event! 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. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal, Litter Cleanup, Native Planting.

The Columbia Slough Watershed Council works to connect the community with the watershed through restoration, recreation and restoration in North and Northeast Portland. Join us for Stewardship Saturdays, our monthly restoration work parties at locations all around the watershed! Celebrate Earth Day with us this April! We’ll be partnering with the Wilkes Neighborhood Association to remove invasive English ivy from the headwaters of Wilkes Creek. Managing these aggressive invasive weeds helps make sure that native plants have a chance to establish themselves. Wilkes Creek is a part of the Slough system, so it’s protection helps advance the Council’s mission to protect, enhance, restore and revitalize the Slough and its watershed. 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 opportunity is open to volunteers 16 years and older, unless accompanied by an adult. Volunteers under 18 should contact the Council for a special youth waiver.
