About

The Rock Creek partnership is a group of community-based land stewardship organizations working together to enhance water quality in the Rock Creek basin. Click here to read more about the Partners.

How it works: We offer FREE restoration services to landowners in Clackamas County’s Rock Creek basin. Here are the steps of the program:

  1. Contact us to express interest
  2. We’ll conduct an initial assessment of the current condition and restoration potential of your streamside property
  3. We’ll propose a schedule of restoration activities
  4. Begin work – community work parties will remove invasive species and plant native species
  5. Maintenance and monitoring for two years

Check our Calendar and join us for our next planting! 

Get muddy and go green at the 3rd Annual Rock Creek Watershed Wide Event on March 15th, 2014! Volunteers are needed to plant native trees and shrubs, remove invasive vegetation, and spread mulch at three streamside projects in the Rock Creek basin (Happy Valley/Damascus). Plus, join in the festivities at the Galaxy Barn of Pendarvis Farm for live music, breakfast/lunch, and raffle prizes! Learn more and register today.
