Plant trees at Steigerwald along the newly restored Gibbons Creek.

About this event

The final phase of the Steigerwald Reconnection Project has begun! The newly reconnected Gibbons Creek is now flowing into restored floodplain and the Columbia River. Join your community in making the final phase of this much-anticipated project a success by planting native trees and shrubs that benefit fish and wildlife.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited. All ages and abilities are welcome!

  • A registration form must be completed for each volunteer.
  • Parents: please fill out a form for each child/dependent. Students ages 16 or older can volunteer without an adult present.

Accessibility: The terrain is loose soil and rock along the new Gibbons Creek channel. The area may be muddy and require rubber boots. There are rubber boots to borrow upon request.

What to bring: Face covering or mask and a water bottle.

What we provide: sanitized planting gloves, shovels, extra masks, snacks and warm beverages.

What to wear: Long sleeves, pants, rain gear and sturdy shoes or boots are recommended.

Before the event: You will receive an email with the parking location and additional details.

At the event: Estuary Partnership staff will share project goals and demonstrate planting techniques. We will review COVID guidelines to ensure safe planting, distribute tools and organize volunteers into small, dispersed groups.

We welcome ALL ages, races and ethnicities, religions, gender identities, countries of origin, sexual orientation, immigrants and refugees, abilities and disabilities, spoken and signed languages. Together, we are a stronger community working toward a common goal.

Estuary Partnership staff are closely following the CDC’s COVID guidelines and will alert all registered guests to any event changes, including cancellation.
