Mission Statement

The Mary S Young volunteers have a mission of eradicating Mary S Young Park of invasive plant species and planting native species to return the park to its native state.

Description

Mary S. Young Park is located at 19900 Hwy. 43 and boasts 126 acres of multi-use sports fields, off-leash dog area and picnic area surrounded by peaceful wooded trails. Volunteers at Mary S. Young Park are credited with removal of invasive species, such as, clematis, blackberries, english ivy and

We are dedicated to the restoration of the riparian habitat for citizen education, recreation and enjoyment. We work in cooperation with the City of West Linn, Parks and Recreation. With this vision to return the park to its native habitat we take several approaches. With the removal of invasive plants, the reintroducing of appropriate native plants, and the restoration of stream beds, the flora and fauna may return to its near original state. We also promote the development of excellent walking trails and general park maintenance.
