Interested in making a positive impact on your community? Not afraid to get a little dirty? Then come join the Ivy-pulling fun on Saturday, October 22nd!

Friends of Trees is working in partnership with the Tualatin River Watershed Council to help restore the Bonita natural area to a diverse and healthy riparian forest ecosystem. The site was recently cleared of a nearly impassable thicket of English hawthorn and Himalayan blackberry, and is on its way to being restored as a mixed hardwood riparian forest. This event will focus on hand pulling English ivy from the existing native trees onsite to protect them from being over taken by this shade-tolerant invasive plant. There will be a great sense of immediate gratification at the end of this event!

Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. 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!

Looking to volunteer as a group? RSVPs are kindly requested for groups of more than 5 people - registration is easy via our online form:

RSVPs are not required for individuals or groups of 4 or fewer -- you can simply show up!

Please contact Jenny or Randi at (503) 595-0213 if you have any questions or need more information. We look forward to seeing you out there!
