NCUWC and GOCWC Partner on Annual Christmas Tree Sale

Season’s Greetings!

It is the winter holiday season so the North Clackamas Urban Watersheds Council and the Greater Oregon City Watershed Council are teaming up again this year for the Holiday Tree Sale on December 3rd. The tree lot will be on the east side of 99E, just north of SE Vineyard Ave, right in front right of the McLoughlin Plaza at 16240 SE McLoughlin Blvd in Oak Grove.  This is a great location with plenty of parking and lots of other services all around to make stopping by worthwhile when out on your errands this Saturday.

Like last year, we will have cut, unshorn Noble firs starting at $20 and live, potted Douglas firs for $20.  We will have tools so we can size the tree to fit your space.  We will also have door swags and other decorations with greens for sale, so come to the sale to pick up some seasonal decorations even if a tree is not for you.  Since the trees were donated, every dollar that we generate from the tree sale goes directly to the Councils.

Last year the event netted just over $1,000 which was evenly split between the two Councils. This event helps meet salary and other operating expenses that are not covered by the grants that support the restoration projects that the Councils are known for.

Please stop by the tree sale to show your support for the work that these watershed councils do for our urban natural environment, and meet some of your watershed warriors.  I hope to see you there.

Have a great holiday season!

Support Creeks this Holiday Season

With 2016 being such a difficult year for many social and environmental causes, it is great to be able to say that NCUWC has made great strides in the protection and restoration of our valuable and often overlooked North Clackamas urban creeks. During a time when natural areas are threatened from every angle it is vital that we restore and protect the waterways that flow through our own backyards!

In 2016, NCUWC expanded our restoration efforts, improved our outreach programs and strengthened partnerships with fantastic creek stewards from community groups to cities and agencies. We want to thank you for all of your support and commitment to stewardship over the years.

However, the work is never done. There are new development proposals every month that threaten water quality and habitat. Our streams currently exceed water temperatures needed for healthy fish runs and fish passage to Kellogg and Mt. Scott Creeks is still blocked by Kellogg Dam. Our children are learning about the importance of the natural world, but are we doing enough to foster a strong generation of creek stewards?

This is why we are asking for your financial support. With your help NCUWC can build on our recent successes and momentum to bring an even stronger voice to the fight for healthy and vibrant creeks and natural areas.

Will you stand with us and donate today?
