Glencoe Swale starts its journey near Hillsboro Airport, flowing four miles through Hillsboro before emptying into McKay Creek. This urban creek provides important habitat for fish and wildlife but has become degraded over time. View the Map
Beginning in 2018, we have worked closely with residents living along Glencoe Swale to create wildlife habitat, boost water quality, and filter rainwater runoff. As part of this ongoing project, we will be offering residents volunteer opportunities to participate in restoring their neighborhood stream. Our partners in this effort include Friends of Trees, City of Hillsboro, and Clean Water Services.
Project size: (as of May 2022)
- Approximately 97,500 plants planted
- 68 acres being restored
- 12 sites enrolled
