Celebrate Earth Day and save trees from invasive English ivy! Join the Clackamas River Basin Council and Earth on the Edge and help us control these weedy vines that threaten the health of our trees. When left unchecked, the invasive English ivy climbs tree trunks and can lead to tree mortality. Ivy weighs down trees, shades out sunlight, and can create a sail effect during windstorms causing trees to fall.
During this work party we will work to save large trees along the Clackamas River near the Water Environment Services Tri-City Water Resource Recovery Facility. Your help is much appreciated!
What to bring:
Please bring water and your favorite work gloves, sturdy shoes or rubber boots and dress in layers. Tools, snacks, coffee and some freebies will be provided!
