Friends of Fanno Creek Headwaters conserves neighborhood green spaces
Non-profit group works to save, restore, and educate about the importance of urban green spaces in the Fanno Creek watershed.
Friends of Fanno Creek Headwaters (FOFCH) is a recently formed group working to restore sections of the SW 25th Ave Community Trail in the Hillsdale neighborhood. Since 2017, hundreds of volunteers have worked to remove thousands of square feet of invasive weeds, and plant hundreds of native plants in this area, including recently removing 700 square feet of blackberry and ivy, and replacing it with 114 native plants.
You can learn more about FOFCH and how you can get involved at an upcoming meeting on Thursday, February 13, from 6 -7:30 PM at the Mittleman Jewish Community Center*, Ballroom B. The meeting will also include a presentation on urban green spaces and why we should care about and protect them. This presentation is FREE and open to the public.
*Please bring a government issued ID to enter the building. Children need to be accompanied by an adult with a government issued ID.
