No Ivy Day

Saturday October 26, 9:00am - 12:00pm

Join the Columbia Slough Watershed Council and Portland Parks & Recreation as we work to remove English ivy from the Johnson Lake area. Invasive species removal restores wildlife habitat and encourages native species regeneration to prevent erosion and water run-off. Please wear long thick pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy shoes. Bring a water bottle, rain gear, and sunhat. Instruction, tools, gloves, water, coffee/tea and snacks provided. This is a family-friendly event and all ages are welcome, but children must be supervised by an adult.

There will be an off-site celebratory lunch following this event! Vegan and gluten-free options will be available. You will have the choice of two lunch locations:
Forest Park, Lower Macleay, 2960 NW Upshur Street, Portland, OR 97210
George Himes Park, SW Terwilliger Parkway and SW Nebraska Street, Portland, OR 97239
