Join Friends of Trees to Pull Invasive Ivy at The Bonita Natural Area (Tigard)

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!
