Habitat Restoration Planting Day at New Light Rail Transit Center


A community volunteer planting event was held on Saturday October 11th to restore an environmentally degraded area adjacent to the new Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Park and Ride transit center under construction at the southwest corner of McLoughlin Blvd and Park Ave. The event was well attended by local community member volunteers eager to get their hands dirty and plant hundreds of new native trees and plants, including GreenWorks staff member Shawn Kummer and daughter Aydan. GreenWorks was involved in this project’s preliminary planting design as part of the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail project. The project was made possibly by the efforts by local environmental group Urban Green and a Metro Nature in the Neighborhoods grant.
