This project will save us $3,607 , allowing us to engage potential sponsors and community volunteers so that we can give back to urban streams, rivers, and the Ocean for years to come!

What We Need

  • A high-resolution digital version of an illustration that can be used across multiple channels (web, print, and/or merchandising)

How This Will Help

The deliverable (an illustrated map of Periwinkle Creek in Albany, Oregon) will help us to engage the local community in stewardship activities (tree planting/watering) and increase awareness about an urban stream in Albany.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a map and photos which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a clear concept of the deliverable and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

We are cleaning 50 beaches in 2018!
