Second-annual watershed event planned


Local watershed advocates invite the community to attend "A Watershed Event" from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Rex Putnam High School, 4950 S.E. Roethe Road, Oak Grove.

Clackamas County commissioners Paul Savas and Martha Schrader will kick off the event with a discussion on the importance of clean water to our community and the region.

"Most people don't know how their everyday activities can impact water quality in our streams. We want the community to know everyone can play a role and take steps to keep our local watersheds and streams clean and healthy," said Karen Streeter, manager of planning and development at Oak Lodge Sanitary District. "Bring your kids to this free, family-friendly event and learn about how even little changes can make a big difference."

While you are there you can enjoy good food, children's activities and a chance to win fabulous prizes including a brunch cruise for four on the Portland Spirit.

Clean water partners sponsoring the event include Oak Lodge Sanitary District, Clackamas County Water Environment Services, Clackamas River Basin Council, Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District, North Clackamas Urban Watersheds Council, SOLVE and Rex Putnam High School.
