Natural Area Goals
Friends of Mt. Tabor Park, Portland Parks & Recreation volunteers, and school groups from the Tabor to the River Program area are working to control invasive vegetation in the park. Volunteer efforts are important, and compliment the large-scale project necessary to restore the park’s natural areas.
The Mt. Tabor Park Invasive Plant Control and Revegetation Project will restore a healthy native forest community with the biological and structural diversity necessary for clean water and wildlife habitat. The project will remove non-native, invasive vegetation, restore native trees, shrubs and grasses and control erosion in natural areas.
