Keep it local: consider voting for the Johnson Creek Watershed Council (JCWC) in a national grant competition that would mean $30,000 to support salmon restoration in one of the last above-ground creeks in the metropolitan Portland area.I voted - will you?
The watershed council is one of six finalists for the grant from River Network and MillerCoors and the only one west of the Mississippi. The one with the most votes by Sunday March 20 wins. (You can vote here.)
Update April 5th, 2011, from JCWC:
Hooray! JCWC came from behind to place second in the River Network/MillerCoors contest. We'll receive $10,000 for our salmon habitat project. Thanks to all of you for your support.
