The Friends of Mt. Tabor Park (FMTP) Weed Warriors are key partners in the city's effort to remove invasive plants and restore native plants in the natural areas at Mt. Tabor Park (find out more at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/mttabor). This reduces stormwater runoff to improve watershed health, enhances habitat for wildlife, and protects Mt. Tabor's forests. Photos and more information about Weed Warrior events are at www.facebook.com/FMTP.WeedWarriors.
The efforts of friends and neighbors make many of our city's parks and natural areas safer and more beautiful. At Mt. Tabor Park, the FMTP Foot Patrol keeps the park safe and clean, FMTP volunteers staff the Visitor Center to inform visitors from around the globe about the park, and FMTP Weed Warriors restore natural areas by removing invasive vegetation and planting native plants.
Want a fun way to be active outside, meet friendly neighbors, and help improve Mt. Tabor Park? The Weed Warriors meet at Mt. Tabor Park from 9:00 a.m. to noon on the last Saturday of every month between April and October. The final opportunities this year are on Saturday, September 27 and Saturday, October 25.
