The Remarkable Story of Portland's Johnson Creek

Thursday October 13, 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Southeast Portland's Johnson Creek is twenty-five miles long and drains fifty-four square miles, flowing from the foothills of the Cascades to its confluence with the Willamette River. The creek is notorious for its frequent floods and has been the subject of over forty-five studies about how to solve its flooding and pollution problems. Who better to share the rough and tumble history of Johnson Creek than someone whose family came to settle along the creek over 125 years ago? Steve Johnson still lives on his family's 8-acre homestead and has spent much of his adult life working on restoration of the watershed.
