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!
