Five Years of Revegetation at Mt Tabor Park


This February marks the fifth season of native plantings at Mt. Tabor for the Environmental Services Watershed Revegetation Program. Since 2011, program partners have planted more than 2,500 native trees and 30,000 native shrubs in the historic park. This month, they’re planting 500 more trees and 2,800 more shrubs. These efforts are part of a wider multi-bureau and community effort to remove invasive species and restore the native trees, shrubs, and grasses that help control erosion in Mt. Tabor Park.

There are also lots of opportunities for you to contribute. Do you like to get your hands dirty? Love native plants? Become a Weed Warrior with Friends of Mt. Tabor Park and you can join in native plantings and invasive species removal. For more information, visit

Now is the perfect time to plant natives on your property. Environmental Services provides resources on native plant species, soil types, retail nursery locations, seed companies, workshops, and relevant guidebooks for all skill levels. Take a look at our Native Plants poster for more on natives, nurseries and other resources.​
