Here are some ways you can partner with the Mt. Tabor Park Invasive Plant Control and Revegetation Project to protect and enhance natural areas, native habitat and watershed health.
- Volunteer to remove invasive plants at Mt.TaborPark; visit the Friends of Mt. Tabor website to learn more.
- Don’t plant invasive plants in your yard. Their seeds can spread to natural areas. Replace invasives with lower-maintenance native plants. Learn more about invasive plants on the City of Portland’s Invasive Plant Management website, or download a free copy of “GardenSmart Oregon.”
- Use native plants in your garden to increase bird and pollinator habitat, minimize watering and eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers. More information is available on the BES Plant Resources and Vegetation Publications website.
- Plan your outdoor space, or learn more about stormwater management and native plants, by attending a free native gardening or introduction to rain gardens workshop through East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District.
- Certify your outdoor space as a Backyard Habitat. Learn more by visiting the website of the Audubon Society of Portland or the Columbia Land Trust.
