In 2020, Portland City Council unanimously approved the Portland Invasive Species Strategy 2020-2030, a project that charts a new course for how the city and community address invasive species and the impacts they cause. With decades of work in mostly natural areas tackling invasive species, and with new invasive species on Portland’s doorstep poised to threaten watershed health and pipes, pumps, and waterfronts, the city is protecting investments and saving money over the long haul.
Below is an audit of 10-plus years of work, a report detailing where we are headed with partners and the community, and a condensed report highlighting goals and identifying needs. This project represents the work of six city bureaus, numerous staff and partner input, and will build on the successes of the 2008 Invasive Plant Strategy while addressing future threats.
