Clatsop Community College will celebrate National TRiO Day of Community Service by participating in the North Coast Land Conservancy’s ‘Saturday Morning Stewardship’ project at Stanley Marsh/Thompson Creek in Seaside on Saturday, February 23. Volunteers will be serving the community and helping the environment by planting hundreds of willow trees to ensure that the beavers have enough material for food and dam building. The work party begins at 9:00 AM and will run until Noon.
Clatsop Community College hosts three TRiO projects: the Plus Program (a Student Support Services project), Talent Search, and Upward Bound. TRiO programs are funded through grants from the US Department of Education to serve students with limited income, disabilities, or who are the first in their families to graduate from college. TRiO programs provide academic tutoring, advising, mentoring, financial guidance, and other supports necessary for educational access and retention.
The Clatsop Community College TRiO Programs invites all current and former TRiO participants and their families to participate in the beaver habitat project. Volunteers should bring: gloves, sturdy boots, rain gear, and water. North Coast Land Conservancy will supply the tools needed. There is no access to public restrooms at the project site. For directions and more information contact please call NCLC Stewardship Director Celeste Coulter at 503-738-9126.
