From Gresham to Portland, volunteers will remove invasive species and plant native trees and shrubs in this urban creek where migrating salmon have started to return.

Projects will last from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 1, followed by a free lunch for volunteers.

To sign up for one of the sites (and reserve your free lunch), log on to jcwc.org/watershedwideregistration/.
