On your marks, get set, GROW!

Leaves are changing, the rain is here for the winter, get excited because you know what that means… PLANTING SEASON!!!
The Clackamas Middle College started our planting season with a bang being our first Green Team this year to begin the planting of native plants in their local riparian corridor. Phillips Creek has now welcomed 100 new native friends into its community thanks to the CMC Global Science classes. I am sure the Phillips Creek community will be enjoying the increased shade, bank stability, food, and habitat that these plants will provide for years to come. And you may notice that the creek has a particular sparkly new sheen (the good metaphorical kind, not the oily polluted kind) as they picked up over 50 lbs of trash, as well as some tires and an old engine that managed to find its way into Phillips Creek. Great work guys!
