Portland Parks & Recreation invites you to participate in their 13th annual No Ivy Day on Saturday, October 29. Join an ivy removal work party from 9 a.m. to noon, and celebrate your efforts afterwards with other volunteers from noon to 1:30 p.m.
No Ivy Day is an annual citywide effort to protect native plants and animals in Portland’s natural areas by working together to remove ivy and other invasive plants that threaten them. Visit www.NoIvyLeague.com to register for the event, learn about the various ways you can participate, see the list of work sites, and learn more about the No Ivy League.
Be sure to dress appropriately for working outdoors in the weather. Event organizers will provide refreshments, tools and instructions. All volunteers who participate will receive a free native plant.
