Green IT Activities

Friends of Gateway Green has been awarded a Community Watershed Stewardship Grant from the City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services to carry out the Gateway “GREEN-IT” events series during the 2011-2012 fiscal year.

The first in the series of stewardship activities at the Gateway Green site was Click IT, held in July 2011 followed by a Pull IT event in October.

The next event is a second Click IT activity on Saturday, February 18, 2012.  During this activity, we will take photographs of the site -- to get a good set of "before" photos prior to development of the recreational features.  We will also establsh some "photo points" for areas where habitat restoration work is most likely to be done.

Dress for the weather, wear your walking shoes, bring your camera and some water -- and join us at the site.  We'll provide some light refreshments.  We'll also have two or three extra cameras we can loan out during the event. [If your camera requires a special cable to download photos, please bring it with you.]

After a brief overview about the project, especially the stewardship aspects of it, we'll spend a couple of hours taking photos, then re-group to share our work. 

Please see the attached poster for information about stewardship events scheduled in March, April, May and June.
