Join us to plant native trees and shrubs along Mount Scott Creek! Over a decade ago Friends of Trees planted at this site establishing a young overstory of native trees at a former dam removal site. We will be planting longer lived evergreen species and native shrubs to build on the past success! This planting is with the support of Clackamas County Service District #1.
Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. The event will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun!
This event is family friendly

Oregon Knows The Secret To Fostering Pro-Conservation Majorities -- Get the Kids Outside
Among the many threats to our planet, one of the most serious is our citizenry’s declining awareness of our natural world and how it works. How can we expect young people to care about this amazing world without a chance to experience and learn--by getting muddy, by analyzing water quality, by measuring the height and carbon content of trees--about the world they live in? In the famous words of Baba Dioum, “In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught." Our ability to solve present and future environmental crises, such as changing climate, the loss of plant and animal species, food insecurity, water resource depletion and soil degradation, all depend upon immersing our children in nature and giving them the tools to understand the forces that govern this planet.
Child care: provided in the Wonder Club 10:45am - 12:45pm. Parents, see details here: http://www.sundayassemblypdx.org/wonder_club
Food Drive: Each month, we can "help often" by supporting Team Relief with a food donation. Please bring donations of unexpired, unopened, canned or packaged food items to the donation table before the Assembly begins. Food items will be used to support those in our community who are in need.
