About

This year we began restoration of the White Oak Savanna in the park by removing blackberry bushes and planting native shrubs. It's now time to remove other invasive plant species that are popping up in the savanna. This is a great opportunity to help restore a visible and much viewed area of the park.

Please join us. We provide tools, gloves, and snacks. We meet in the picnic area across the parking lot from the dog park. Since we are in the cold and rainy season we do ask volunteers to dress for cold and wear or bring rain gear. We work rain or shine.

We are dedicated to the restoration of the riparian habitat for conservation education, recreation, and enjoyment. We work in cooperation with the City of West Linn, Parks and Recreation and SOLVE. We have a vision to return part of the park to its native habitat. With the removal of invasive plants, the reintroducing of appropriate native plants, and the restoration of stream beds, the flora and fauna is returning to its near original native state.
