Turner Creek is an urban waterway that starts its journey near downtown Hillsboro. This 1.5-mile creek flows through the city of Hillsboro before emptying into Rock Creek at the Grace Johnson Estate. This urban creek provides important habitat for fish and wildlife but has become degraded over time.
This project aims to enhance wildlife habitat by removing invasive plants and replanting native trees and shrubs. Once established, these plants will improve our community’s drinking water by filtering pollution and keeping water cool.
Project size: (as of June 2023)
- Approximately 350 plants planted
- 2 acres being restored
- 7 neighbors enrolled
