Rock Creek Watershed Partners

Watershed Tales:

Rock Creek Watershed Partners Fundraiser Auction

5:30-9 pm Thursday October 12, 2006
McMenamin's Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, Octagonal Barn

Metro President David Bragdon, local storyteller Mitch Luckett to participate in Watershed Tales Fundraiser

Rock Creek Watershed Partners (rcwp.org), a coalition of stream groups who look out for the Rock Creek watershed (see attached map), will hold their annual fundraising silent auction this Thursday evening, October 12 in the historic Octagonal Barn at McMenamin's Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, 4045 N.W. Cornelius Pass Rd., Hillsboro.

The program will include Metro President David Bragdon who will share his views on the importance of watersheds and “21st Century Troubador” Mitch Luckett will entertain and inform us with stories and songs. You can learn something while supporting a good cause. “The Playing Cards” from Lewis & Clark College will share acoustical guitar and songs between stories. Food and beverages will be available throughout the event, which will run from 5:30-9 pm.

Auction items have been combined into “Objects of Desire” for the event. A Romantic Basket includes tickets to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, a handblown glass carafe set, wine and other romantic goodies. A Householder Package, Birder Baskets, Outdoor Adventure packages and more will entice bidders.

The mission of the Rock Creek Watershed Partners is to protect and restore a healthy watershed by turning citizens into active stream stewards. They believe that people want to live in a vibrant and healthy environment and will do the right thing if they know what that is. From restoration projects to homeowner education and neighborhood outreach, RCWP is here to help.

Some of the major accomplishments of the RCWP include funding an AmeriCorps volunteer coordinator position to further the goals of the group, hosting educational workshops, and playing an active role in the restoration of local parks and wetlands.

Funds raised at the auction will go toward hiring a new Stream Stewardship Coordinator and toward pursuing our other activities. Some of our funding comes from grants, but the support of people in our watershed and around the region is critical to our success.

If you love our watershed and want to do your part, you'll find a roomful of like-minded neighbors having a good time at the event. For more information, contact Virginia Bruce, 503-629-5799 email us
