If you would like to know how to make your home, street and neighborhood more green, resilient and prepared, you will want to know about the G and R Neighborhood Initiative.
The Green and Resilient Neighborhood Initiative is a series of presentations, site tours, skill share and work parties. Its all free and takes place in the River Road Neighborhood this summer.
Presentations will touch on earthquakes with overviews of CERT Training, Map Your Neighborhood, Neighborhood Watch and creating Green and Resilient Neighborhoods. The presentations will explain how these programs can help neighbors meet and work together.
The site tours will feature edible landscaping, rain water catchment, solar design, front yard gardens, examples of neighborhood collaboration and much more. The skill shares will include food storage, permaculture, edible landscaping and more.
The first presentation is June 13, 7 PM at the River Road Rec Center, 1400 Lake Drive. Josh Bruce, Director of the Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience will explain the implications of the overdue Cascadia Earthquake.

The Red Cross is organizing First Aid Service Teams (FAST) to provide basic first aid support for attendees at this summer’s Olympic Trials hosted here in Eugene from July 1-10. This is a great opportunity for high school and college students and community members to be Red Cross CPR/First Aid/AED trained and who want to do something interesting in their local community this summer. Contact Whitney at the Red Cross office, 541-344-5244, if you have any questions.
