Come one, come all! Please join us at Fields Bridge Park in West Linn to help with habitat restoration. This is a beautiful city park along the Tualatin River with many uses (walking paths, baseball fields, community garden, playground, fishing areas). This year, we will be focusing on some of the shadier areas.......removing invasive species such as ivy, holly, knotweed, and blackberries during the summer and early fall followed by a planting of native plants in late fall. This event is a collaboration between the City of West Linn (and its volunteers) and the Tualatin Riverkeepers.
