Bridlemile Creek Stewards

What We Do

The Bridlemile Creek Stewards are volunteer neighbors experienced with stream habitat restoration. We restore Bridlemile creek tributaries to control erosion, protect property and improve water quality, fish, wildlife and human habitat. We help homeowners and students learn how to make their yards and parks a healthier part of the watershed. Our mission is to engage the Bridlemile community to protect and restore watershed health by facilitating and supporting projects which enhance watershed health, including erosion control, wildlife habitat and water quality. Typical projects include conversion from invasive species to native plants. Our outreach will include identifying properties in need of habitat conversion, and educating property owners about sharing space with wildlife. We hope to engage and encourage all of Bridlemile's property owners to take responsibility for improving water quality and habitat.

Opportunities for service with us

The Bridlemile Creek Stewards are monitoring and maintaining a site in Albert Kelly Park (located in SW Portland near SW Dosch Rd. and SW Mitchell Ct. just North of Beaverton - Hillsdale Hwy.) Join us for invasive removals in a finished stream restoration project. We meet in the stream area. This is the third and final phase of a three year restoration and shows the progress of restoration activity. Call Greg at 503-246-2714 for details or visit the web site (click our name above) for dates and times.  Our monthly calendar is listed on our site and we meet each month through September. We then hold monthly meetings and an invasive removal/planting.
