During the month of September, the Johnson Creek Watershed Council is hosting the Cycle Stroll, a benefit event where participants raise money for the miles they travel on the Springwater Corridor Trail. Participants ride their bikes, walk, run, jog, skateboard, or dogsled (you get the idea, any form of motion is welcome) along the Springwater Corridor Trail, logging their miles and collecting pledges from family, friends, and colleagues. Participants complete miles at their own pace at any time during the month. Pledges can be per-mile or a flat donation. Donations raised through this event will support the Council's restoration, education and outreach programs. Registration is still open at http://www.jcwc.org/getInvolved/cyclestroll.htm or by calling 503-652-7477.
