Partnership Staff Volunteer in Cross Park
The Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership has partnered with Wilderness International, a non-profit and at-risk youth conservation group, to provide habitat restoration in Cross Park. Wilderness International crews have worked for months in the park just upstream from the River Intake Pump Station on the Clackamas River. Crews have removed invasive species and planted native plants to improve the look and function of the park. The youth involved are enthusiastic about what they are giving back to the community in Gladstone.
One March 1, 2014, twelve staff members from the Partnership volunteered their Saturday morning to help plant new trees and shrubs. Watch the video to learn more about this great partnership and the improvement it has brought to Gladstone’s Cross Park.
