Adopt-A-Greenway – Pine Street

Stream Smart is the adoptee of the Bear Creek Greenway from Pine Street to Upton Road. As part of Jackson County Park’s Adopt-A-Greenway program, activities along adopted sections, such as trash clean-ups, invasive weed removal, planting, and other restoration efforts should happen on a monthly basis. Stream Smart is working with a Crater High School intern to develop an Adopt-A-Greenway plan for the Pine Street to Upton Road section of the Greenway. If you would like to be involved in monthly efforts or have ideas for activities, please contact Amie Siedlecki, Natural Resources Coordinator for the Rogue Valley Council of Governments: asiedlecki(at)rvcog.org.
