Join Portland Parks & Recreation, Friends of trees, Friends of the Columbia Children's Arboretum and Portland OIC, with support from the Port of Portland, East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District, Metro, and the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation to restore a part of one of NE Portland's "hidden gems": the Columbia Children's Arboretum. We will be planting hundreds of native trees and shrubs and removing invasive species including Himalayan Blackberry and English Ivy -- and your help is what makes this community planting possible! RSVPs kindly requested.
Please arrive by 8:45am to sign-in and enjoy some breakfast treats and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. The planting starts promptly at 9:00am. We provide gloves, tools, and guidance, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes or boots – and be ready to have fun!
