Help needed in clean-up on Indian Creek Trail

The Indian Creek Stewards group is holding a clean-up along a section of Hood River’s Indian Creek on Sunday, Nov. 3, from noon to 3 p.m.

The forested area is adjacent to the heavily used Indian Creek Trail, but is covered with trash — even sleeping bags have been thrown into the creek.

A public forested setting in the midst of an urban area is rare. The stewards invite the community to join them in reclaiming this site.

Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and meet near the Union Street Substation, east of the junction of 12th and Union streets. Gloves, trash bags and other supplies will be provided; also coffee and snacks.

Project supporters include SOLVE and Dog River Coffee. Hood River Garbage Service will donate disposal for the event.


Indian Creek Stewards is a volunteer group working to protect and enhance Indian Creek. Members include the Hood River Watershed Group, Columbia Gorge Community College, Hood River Valley High School, Horizon Christian School,, and community residents.

The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
