Work Party at Stephens Creek Park, work on the Raz Baack Crossing Friday Oct 11, 9 to noon as part of Park Diem organized by the Portland Parks Foundation. We have been promised T shirts, fruit and drinks and a discount coupon for Columbia Sportswear for those who show up.
“SWTrails and the Hillsdale Neighborhood are sponsoring a trail maintenance work party on Friday October 11, from 9 am to noon in Stephens Creek Natural Area, a City of Portland Park. The work will include hauling, spreading and compacting gravel on the many steps at this location, removing debris from between the gaps on the deck of the 92 foot walkway, pruning back invasives and other tasks to improve this much loved crossing.
Wear stout shoes, dress for the weather, bring a large screwdriver if you have one, to scrape the moss et al from between the decking, large buckets with you name written on them so they do not get mixed into the trail bucket inventory. Bring a hammer to install some cleats on the stairs if that is what you want to work on.
The work site is located at the intersection of SW Bertha Blvd and SW Chestnut Drive south of SW Vermont. Take exit 297 off I5, go across Barbur onto Bertha Blvd. The work site is about 1/4 mile NW of the ‘Burlingame Fred Meyer on Barbur’. SW Bertha is just behind Fred Meyer (North). Plan to park on SW Chestnut Drive.”
