FRIENDS OF HENDRICKS PARK
The inaugural Forest Keeper season is chugging along. Sign up here for any Saturday now through June to be a part of a small team wandering the forest in search of invasive species. You won’t have to search very hard. You’ll be sure to learn a lot about what changes as the season progresses as you remove common weeds like Herb Robert, nipplewort, blackberry, ivy and more from the interior of the forest. Try it out once or for several sessions – projects vary each week.

The nitty gritty for all events!
>Meet at your scheduled start time across from the forest parking lot at the rock restrooms. The nearest intersection is Fairmount Blvd and Floral Hill Dr.
>Review the attached Safety Protocols for COVID-19 and only come if you are healthy and well. We all appreciate it.
>We have gloves and tools to share with all you, but if you have your own to bring, that’s even better. A pair of pruners and/or a weeding tool are appropriate.
>Bring your own water and snacks and anything else you need to be comfortable for a 3-hour work party.
>Prioritize self-care and take breaks as needed. We won’t take a group break due to COVID-19 precautions.

AMAZON CREEK CLEAN UP

Eugene’s Amazon Creek needs your help with litter cleanup as it flows through our community! At times, this important urban waterway can become inundated with garbage that is harmful to habitat and water quality. Volunteers are needed throughout the Amazon Creek corridor to remove debris and improve the conditions for all flora and fauna along the way.

How to Help:

Love Your Parks Solo CleanupsJune 12 – June 30
The magic of the solo cleanup or rallying your own quaranteam cleanup is that it is super easy to do and can happen whenever you want. All you need is some gloves, a trash bag and a trash grabber.

Our first Love Your Park Cleanup will be focused on the Amazon Creek with an official kick-off at our annual Trash Bash Cleanup event on June 12. We invite volunteers to continue solo and quaranteam cleanups through June 30.

Volunteers can borrow a free cleanup kit with disposable gloves, trash bags and a trash grabber. Cleanup kits will be available for pickup at the Trash Bash event. Email Kelsey Irvine to sign up to participate in Love Your Parks: Amazon Creek and reserve your cleanup kit if you would like one.  Spread the word! Invite your friends and family to join you for a trip to the creek together.
