Green Roof Workshops in September

September Green Roof Series A green roof is a vegetated roof system that soaks up rain through plants installed on the roof. Plants soak up rainwater, limiting runoff by absorbing rainwater before it reaches our streams. Green roofs absorb CO2 (greenhouse gas), provide habitat, and keep structures cooler in summer and warmer in winter, reducing utility bills.

 

Attend one or all four workshops hosted by Columbia Springs, LOCALS, Washington State University Clark County Extension, and Clark County Environmental Services.

 

Getting to Know Green Roofs Thursday, September 9, 6:30-8:00 p.m. Get the basics on green roofs and learn about how you can improve the environment, create habitat and save on your energy bills. $15

Save the Date - SOLV Beach and Riverside Cleanup - 9/25

Saturday, September 25th is the date of the SOLV Beach and Riverside Cleanup, presented by the Oregon Lottery. Thousands of volunteers will clean up Oregon’s beaches from the California border to the Columbia River – and also work along rivers, creeks, lakes and other waterways throughout Oregon and SW Washington - improving the quality of water that we all use for drinking, recreation, agriculture and more. This is the first year that SOLV has expanded our popular fall beach cleanup to include inland projects. Much of what volunteers collect at the beach is carried there by rivers, streams, and storm drains (data collected from the 2009 cleanup tells us that 60 – 80% of ocean trash originates from inland sources).
