Clark County Public Works wants to recognize the wonderful volunteers who work hard to make our community better.
The following provides a brief summary of some of the volunteer activities in the county during 2018.
Pathways Program students from Washougal High School ventured out to Whipple Creek Regional Park on Jan. 24.
The group met up with the Whipple Creek Restoration Committee and several community volunteers to plant trees. The event took place in the rain, which was no match for this motivated team.
Together, 50 trees and shrubs were planted. The group even finished up a little early.
In February, a small group of Clark College students completed a water project for their school assignment.
Students chose to perform a litter cleanup at Frenchman’s Bar Regional Park on Feb. 28.
In addition to collecting small pieces of litter, students recovered broken lawn furniture and several rolls of foam. Their efforts kept these items from entering the Columbia River.
The month of March was productive for the Washougal Pathways Program.
On March 7, students pulled invasive ivy and performed a general park clean up at Lacamas Lake Regional Park.
Students then cleaned park signs and cut back blackberry at Capt. William Clark Regional Park at Cottonwood Beach on March 21.
On March 7, students from Skyview High School’s Key Club performed their monthly park cleanup at Chinook Neighborhood Park.
Students cleaned play equipment, washed picnic tables and benches, swept walkways, collected litter, raked bark chips and cut back invasive Himalayan blackberry.
The Oasis Sonseekers performed an Earth Day cleanup at Hockinson Meadows Community Park on April 21. This young and enthusiastic group completed many tasks, including picking up litter, clearing picnic shelters and play structures, and clearing large woody debris from walkways.
Volunteers participated in a variety of activities throughout Clark County on Saturday, April 21, in honor of Earth Day. At Whipple Creek Regional Park, volunteers joined with the Whipple Creek Restoration Committee to clear trails, spread rock and remove invasive plants.
On April 28, the Hazel Dell Lions Club came out to Hazel Dell Community Park for its regular Adopt-A-Park activities. Volunteers removed large woody debris, cleaned shelters and picked up litter. Thank you for all your hard work, Hazel Dell Lions!
