Whipple Creek Work Party

There will be a Whipple Creek Trail Work Party on Thursday, April 27, 2017, 08:30am - 03:30pm.   During the past five years WTA, the Whipple Creek Restoration Project and Clark County made incredible improvements to this beautiful park. Come help with this spring's maintenance to keep these trails in tip top shape!  

About the Area: This 300-acre regional park is located just north of Vancouver, immediately west of the Clark County Fairgrounds. The main feature of this park is 4.3 miles of trails that cater to hikers and horseback riders alike. This park is also an exceptionally pristine and tranquil forest environment, and is home to many types of wildlife, including woodpeckers, hawks, deer, flying squirrels, herons and beavers. Opportunities abound for wildlife viewing. We'll have fun, work hard and make a difference!  No experience is necessary.

Location (Note that GPS is not usually accurate): Whipple Creek Park is just south of Ridgefield, WA, west of the Clark County Fairgrounds and north of Vancouver. From Downtown Vancouver take I-5 North exit #9, follow 179th St. west for 1.5 miles. Turn left (south) on NW 21st Ave. Go about .3 miles to a large gravel parking area at the end of the road. No need for any parking pass at this County Park.

You can get more information regarding what to bring, event schedule, location, and sign up on their website.
