Watershed council hosts fundraiser for June 17

INDEPENDENCE — The Luckiamute Watershed Council will host a fundraiser June 17 for one of several of the group’s improvement projects in Polk and Benton counties.

Rockin’ the River, a concert and auction, will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. at Rogue Farms, located at 3590 Wigrich Road in Independence. The event will raise money to support restoration along Ash Creek.

The group hopes to raise $8,000, which can provide 9,000 plants to be bought and planted.

The concert and auction is free and family friendly and will feature live music by the Morgans.

Items may be donated for the auction through Monday, June 15.

Contact Gail Oberst, 503-871-1242 for more details.

Partners on the restoration project include the cities of Monmouth and Independence, Ash Creek Water Control District, Central School District 13J and Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board.
