Invasive Free Silverton

Location:
Coolidge McClaine Park
Silverton, Oregon, United States

Date & Time:
June 4, 2022 | 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (Local Timezone)

Event Summary:

Invasive non-native English ivy is swallowing the natural forested areas along Silver Creek. It climbs into the trees and endangers then. When ivy become aerial it begins to flower and produce seeds which are spread into other natural areas. By cutting the ivy as it climbs the trees, we save the trees and stop the ivy from reproducing. We will meet and scout out trees with ivy climbing their trunks. Then we will cut the ivy. It's an easy job done by all ages.
