August 21 Whipple Creek Trail Day

Volunteers needed: August 21 Whipple Creek Trail Day

 

Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation is seeking volunteers to help improve the trails at Whipple Creek Regional Park on Saturday, August 21st from 9:-1:00. This volunteer event marks the continuation of a long-term collaboration between Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation and the Clark County Executive Horse Council to improve the entire trail system within the 300-acre regional park.

 

The Whipple Creek Trail Day will feature fun activities for the whole family. In addition to the trail improvement work, there will be informational booths and educational demonstrations by local equestrian and Clark County organizations. Volunteer registration starts at 8:45 a.m. in the park (17202 NW 21st Ave., south of NW 179th Street,98642). Volunteers should dress appropriately for outdoor work. Gloves, water, tools, a light breakfast and a BBQ lunch will be provided.

 

To sign-up to volunteer or to inquire about setting up an informational booth, please contact Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation Volunteer Coordinator Teresa Fernandez at (360) 619-1124 or [email protected]

 

The Whipple Creek Trail Day follows a Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation Watershed Team project that began last month to improve a footbridge with new decking and rails. This project will provide safe crossing conditions for trail users.

 

The Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation Watershed Team is an Americorps-staffed program that assists in restoring and managing thousands of acres of sensitive lands located inside city and county-owned parks, trails and greenways. Working in coordination with Clark County Public Works and multiple environmental partners, the Team performs a variety of tasks, ranging from large scale planting projects, to stream monitoring, invasive weed management and environmental education. If you are interested in learning more about the Watershed Team, please contact Teresa Fernandez at (360) 619-1124 or visit this Web page: http://www.vanclarkparks-rec.org.
