Stewardship Work Party at Woodmont Park

Plant and Pull in Woodmont Park

April 7, SU 1–3p
Bring a friend and join Friends of Woodmont Park to remove invasive species that threaten the native species. Once the ground is clear, grab a shovel and help nestle tender native species into the forest floor to restore the natural area. The pollinators that depend on native species thank you for restoring their natural habitat!

Park at the intersection of Atwater Rd and Knaus Rd., Lake Oswego. Woodmont Park is down a wide graveled trail that runs along an old orchard.

Stewardship Work Party at Iron Mt. Park

 

Free the Trees in Iron Mountain Park

April 7, SU 1–3p
Spring has Sprung and this means Mother Nature has been busy! Join Friends of Iron Mt. Park as they remove invasive species that crowd out the native species. The native species thank you for clearing the forest of invasive species that compete for the sun and soil. Native plants are essential to the pollinators, birds and animals that call this forest their home. Make sure to allow extra time to wander the soft paths that wind through the 50 acres of forest to the eagle’s eye viewing platform.

Parking: Take graveled Brookside Rd to the trail head that is behind the Oswego Hunt Club.  Brookside Rd. is off of Twin Fir Rd.
