Park clean-up set for Aug. 15

The Claggett Creek Watershed Council along with a number of McNary High School students will be conducting a general clean-up of Palma Ciea Park on Sunday, Aug. 15, beginning at 10 a.m.

There will be trash pick up along with blackberry and ivy removal. The public is invited to help with the project. Those who do volunteer should bring work gloves and tools.

Palma Ciea park is an undeveloped park at the end of Cummings Lane N. A member of the West Keizer Neighborhood Association reported that there is an osprey nest at the park and a mother bird is teaching her babies how to fly.
