Photos and Story by James Hill
The Grants Office at PCC is pleased to announce the award of $5,000 from the Portland Bureau of Environmental Services to the PCC Sylvania Habitat Restoration Team.
This one-year grant will support the team’s restoration efforts of Sylvania’s North and South Upper Ball Creeks, Upper Red Rock Creek and Sylvania Natural Area Park (SNAP). The Team, working with the Sylvania Grounds crew, PCC students and staff, and community volunteers, will carry on its work removing invasive species, planting NW native plants, and stabilizing creek beds.
The team will continue its experimental placement of mini-bio-swales to reduce stream flow and rebuild the natural streambed. Also this year, the team will be starting an herbaceous propagation program, using the new PCC Sylvania Biology Department greenhouse.
