Wet and Wild at Rock Creek

Clackamas High schoolers had a great few days out at Rock Creek this week.  Students removed blackberry vines and dug out stubborn blackberry roots to make way for native plants like cottonwood, Douglas fir and Oregon grape.  In just one day, a class was able to plant 205 natives!  Students also went on a nature walk to get acquainted with the site and its biodiversity; they walked to the confluence of Rock Creek and the Clackamas River and some students had the great fortune of seeing a wild spawning salmon in the creek.  Be sure to look for underwater footage in our video!
