Last fall, the City celebrated the grand re-opening of Westmoreland Park and the restoration of Crystal Springs Creek in Southeast Portland.
Straw Bale Films, a local film company that focuses on sustainable practices and environmental concerns, produced Crystal Clear, a short film about the incredible restoration.
The film highlights the history, restoration, and success of Crystal Springs Creek. The City’s Bureau of Environmental Services was proud to partner with the Johnson Creek Watershed Council, Reed College, and other community groups to restore the creek’s natural environment.
Crystal Springs is a major tributary to Johnson Creek, and flows into the Willamette River. It’s an important habitat for salmon, birds, and other wildlife.
