Love green spaces? Want to help insure the growth of native species in Forest Park?
Friends of Trees and Portland Parks & Recreation need your help to remove invasive English Ivy and replant with native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers to help enhance this iconic park.
We will need to arrive at the Aspen Entrance to Forest park by 8:45am to sign in and be ready to take an approximately 10-minute walk on steep terrain to the planting area. The planting will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun!
Please note: The group will meet at 7:45am at PSU to take the streetcar and bus over to this project together. If you would prefer to meet directly at the project site at 8:45am, please indicate this in your registration.
This project is open to all Portland State University students through the Student Community Engagement Center's #serveyourcityserveyourcampus program and coordinated by Student Leaders for Service.
