More than 20 PKW residents participated in this year’s event. The group broke up into four groups: wetlands cleanup, mailbox cleanup, picnic table assembly, and plantings.
A small group of volunteers removed trash in the wetlands area to our north. (They were careful not to disturb any wildlife.)
Tape residue, algae, dirt, and other substances were removed from the community mailboxes.
There are now two new tables at the pool and one each at the two urban parks and the great lawn gazebo.
In cooperation with CleanWater Services, the Tualatin River Watershed Council donated 100 trees, shrubs, and plants to our HOA to be planted in the areas adjacent to the wetlands. Our crew planted 70 of these along Johnson Creek in the Merrit Woods Natural Area.
Lunch was served afterwards at the Clubhouse.
A special thanks to Sunrise Bagels (10902 SW Barnes Rd) for providing the sandwiches!
Original post: Help cleanup and beautify the areas surrounding our wonderful community.
We’ll break into teams and tackle several different areas such as:
Prepare ground and Plant NW Natives in selected areas of the community.
Clean Mailboxes, and TBD odd jobs within Peterkort.
Wetlands and surrounding neighborhood trash collection.
We’ll meet at the Clubhouse at 10am for assignments and work together till noon. Lunch will be provided at the Clubhouse.
We will have basic supplies on hand such as garbage bags but please bring your own gloves if desired.
Lunch and T-shirts will be provided! To help defray the costs, please bring $5/person.
Please RSVP by April 11th so we can get a count for lunch, T-shirts, and hats. When signing up, if you have a shirt from last year, let us know! Otherwise, please indicate what size t-shirt to order or if you would prefer a baseball hat.
