Tree Planting on Burnt Bridge Creek @ Moore Property

VolunTOUR is a volunteer program that focuses on education and exploration. The City of Vancouver and Clark County has partnered with Watershed Alliance to offer volunteers a tree planting opportunity along a portion of Burnt Bridge Creek. VolunTOUR is a great opportunity for families, teens, and volunteers of all ages!

Historically, Burnt Bridge Creek has been known for its polluted waters and invasive plant species that run alongside it. However, over the last few decades a lot of work has been done to restore and protect the creek. We need your help to continue the restoration work!

Story Gathering @ Vancouver Water Resource Center

First-person storytelling has a unique power to deepen our understanding of the histories, cultures, and environment that surrounds us. Confluence Story Gatherings are welcoming forums that feature the stories of Native elders, leaders, and thinkers, told in their own voices, as a way to explore the interconnectedness of the people and places of the Columbia River system.

 

These events feature video selections of first-person narratives and mini-documentaries, followed by discussions led by a panel of Native representatives. This event is in partnership with Columbia Land Trust and The Watershed Alliance of Southwest Washington.
