Enjoy the Summer by Giving Back to Nature with Mountain Restoration Trust

Help remove crayfish from your creeks and streams with Mountain Restoration Trust!

They prey on native species, reduce water quality, and cause problems with creek bed erosion. They need your help in trapping and removing the crayfish as well as picking up trash along the stream. MRT staff will meet volunteers on the Medea Creek Trail, which starts at the corner of Conifer Street and Parkview Drive. Volunteers 12 years or younger must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers under the age of 18 must bring the Parental Consent Form with a parent or guardian's signature if the parent or guardian is not attending. Registration is free, but required.
