Tree Saturday Volunteer Work Party! Aug 25 9am -12pm

Educational Plant Walk and Work Party.  On this beautiful Saturday morning you can not only help restore beautiful Forest Park, but you can also learn about the medicinal uses of plants found in the park, and all over Portland.  This educational series will be presented FREE through a partnership with National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) and American Clothing Experiment.

Volunteer with the Forest Park Conservancy on Tree Saturday and help preserve the vital and beautiful Forest Park! We’ll be removing English ivy, an invasive vine that topples trees and takes the place of native plants.
