Join the Clark County Green Business Program in partnership with the Watershed Alliance of SW Washington and the City of Vancouver, to give back to the community by planting native trees and shrubs help improve the water quality and habitat of Burnt Bridge Creek. This event will be an opportunity to build connections with your colleagues and employees from other green businesses, learn about trees and watershed health, and support the community.
Have you ever heard of Burnt Bridge Creek? This creek flows westward for about 13 miles from its headwaters in agricultural fields on the east end of Vancouver through the heart of the city until it drains into Vancouver Lake. Historically, Burnt Bridge Creek is known for its polluted water and invasive plants that run alongside it.However, over the last two decades a lot of work has been done to restore and protect the creek.
We invite you to plant native trees to help improve the water quality and habitat of this great resource in our community. All the tools are provided, along with gloves, food, and water. There will be instructions about how to plant before we begin. Bringing a reusable water bottle is encouraged. Wear closed-toed shoes and dress for the weather.
Green Businesses are already setting the trend to enhance our community. This event will be an opportunity to build connections with your colleagues and employees from other green businesses, learn about trees and watershed health, and support the community. We will be working at a property along Burnt Bridge Creek, and the specific location is may change.
There will be a short talk about the importance of native trees and shrubs and how they contribute to the health of a watershed. The discussion will cover the reasons that we are restoring and protecting Burnt Bridge Creek. City of Vancouver Urban Forestry Program will cover their street tree program and their TreeCAP program and how businesses can benefit from participating.
