10/10/10 Global Work Party — Taking Local Action

Yesterday was the Global Work Party — 10/10/10 — a day when people across the globe decided to celebrate our climate solutions and send a message to our politicians: “We’re getting to work — what about you?”

We decided there was no better time to get together and help restore one of our local watersheds. So some of us SOS advocates joined up with the good people at Johnson Creek Watershed Council and spent the afternoon restoring a pedestrian path along Crystal Springs Creek in Sellwood.

This gave us the time to get our hands dirty and talk about salmon... two of our favorite things. And plenty of blackberry brambles and invasive plants made it into our 350 street installation!

Thanks to everyone who came out and volunteered.
