Green Roof Workshop Series at Columbia Springs

Green Roof Workshop Series at Columbia Springs Columbia Springs, the environmental education center located at the historic Vancouver Trout Hatchery site on Old Evergreen Highway, will host four workshops in September to provide participants with information and experience on building living green roofs. Workshops will be presented by experienced green roof professionals who will address the diversity of green roof approaches and answer questions from those interested in the design, construction, and purpose of living green roofs. Green roofs are growing in popularity as an effective way to extend the life of a roof while reducing storm-water runoff, fuel costs, and the reflection of heat into the atmosphere.

Damascus, OR, September, 2010 – Did you know the Clackamas River is “home” to inflatable dolphins, chains of flip-flops, and lawn chairs?

This year’s event will launch from Barton Park, where a flotilla of volunteers will raft, kayak, SCUBA, or canoe down a fourteen-mile stretch of the Clackamas, removing any trash it may encounter along the way.

 

Since its inception in 2003, the Down the River Clean Up has involved more than 1,565 volunteers and removed more than 18 tons of trash from the Clackamas. This year’s hard work will not go un-rewarded!
