Volunteers Needed to Help Gresham’s Streams!

Reach out to your community: Become a volunteer today!

Non-native, invasive weeds like Himalayan Blackberry and English Ivy are taking over stream banks in neighborhoods all over Gresham! Weed infestations are causing bank erosion and water pollution, destroying wildlife habitat and decreasing property values in our community.

Get Involved!

Get dirty, make new friends and help restore Gresham streams at Saturday morning community events! At community events, local residents partner with AmeriCorps volunteers and staff members to remove non-native, invasive weeds from streamside areas and replace them with thousands of native Oregon trees and shrubs.
