Watershed 101 Workshop with Riverdale Grade School
We were glad to put on a Watershed 101 workshop with Riverdale Grade School students! Eighth graders taking a quarterly elective called Environmental Stewardship were able to get outside and get hands-on on campus by removing tree ivy from trees behind the school’s buildings. These trees had clearly been treated for tree ivy before, as evidenced by the remnants of larger old-growth ivy vines. By splitting our workshop across two days -one for a presentation where we explored TCWC’s Interactive Map, the other for hands-on work- we were able to provide education about watersheds as well as a chance to get outside and experience the near instant gratification that tree ivy work provides! Enjoy some photos below.
Thanks to City of Portland BES’ Community Watershed Stewardship Program for funding our Watershed 101 Workshop program!
