Become Stewards of Your Part of the Johnson Creek Watershed
A steward is someone who is entrusted with the preservation and protection of a natural area over a long period of time. We are all stewards of the land, air, and water around us. By living responsibly and being aware of the impact we have on our environment, we can improve and protect the natural wonders around us. Below are ways that you can become more involved as a steward for Johnson Creek.
Backyard Habitat Certification Program
Audubon Society of Portland and Columbia Land Trust offer the Backyard Habitat Certification Program to residents of Portland and Lake Oswego. This program provides technical assistance to small-lot, private property owners to create or improve native wildlife habitat in their backyards. The program focuses on the removal of aggressive weeds, naturescaping with native plants, stormwater management and wildlife stewardship. Visit the Audubon Society website for more information.
