Watershed Tales at fundraiser auction

Rock Creek Watershed Partners, a coalition of stream groups who look out for the Rock Creek watershed (see map), has scheduled their first fundraising silent auction for Wednesday evening, November 9 at the McMenamin’s Cornelius Pass Roadhouse. Food and beverages will be available during the event, which will run from 5:30-9 pm.

The program will include a variety of folks telling “Watershed Tales” throughout the evening, with acoustical guitar and songs between stories.
The mission of the Rock Creek Watershed Partners is to protect and restore a healthy watershed by motivating and enabling a community of active stream stewards in the basin. They accomplish their mission by building organizational capacity and providing support to groups and individuals who practice good stream stewardship.

Some of the major accomplishments of the RCWP include funding an AmeriCorps volunteer coordinator position to further the goals of the group, hosting educational workshops, and playing an active role in the restoration of Cedar Mill Park, Cedar Mill Wetland in Beaverton, Noble Woods in Hillsboro, and Portland Community College’s Rock Creek preserve in the Bethany area.

Items available at the auction include a family membership to the Sunset Athletic Club, snowshoes, a full-day ski pass, yoga lessons, native plants and lots more.

If you love our watershed and want to do your part, you’ll find a roomful of like-minded neighbors having a good time at the event. For more information, call Melissa Higgins at 503-629-6305, extension 2953.
