No Ivy Day

Natural Area Stewardship News


No Ivy Day 2019 is right around the corner! 
Saturday, October 26th

Join 1 of 14 events throughout the Portland metro area to remove ivy from parks and natural areas! Removing introduced species like English ivy helps increase the diversity and abundance of native plants, which creates more habitat for local wildlife. Join us in these restoration efforts at your local park or natural area from 9am-12pm, then share food and stories with other volunteers from around the city at a celebration from 12:00pm-1:30pm!

Celebration locations at:

Forest Park, Lower Macleay, 2960 NW Upshur Street, Portland, and
George Himes Park, SW Terwilliger Parkway and SW Nebraska Street, Portland

This is a fun opportunity to enjoy food together, share ivy removal stories, and connect with fellow volunteers.

Project sites include: Forest Park, Gateway Green, George Himes Park, Hoyt Arboretum, Indian Creek Natural Area, Johnson Lake, Marquam Nature Park, Marshall Park, Pier Park, Woods Memorial Park, Nadaka Nature Park, Portland Community College Sylvania Campus, Spring Park/Elk Rock Island, Tenny Creek Park

See you soon!
