Habitat Enhancement at Leach Botanical Garden

January 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

When: Wednesday 12 January 2022

Where: Leach Botanical Garden

RSVP is required! Sign up here.

Join us in removing invasive weeds from the Leach Botanical Garden! This work helps to create new spaces and supports our collaborative Back 5 educational project. No experience necessary!

The Leach Botanical Garden is a hidden gem in outer SE Portland. Beyond the manicured paths of the garden are several acres of forests and fields which have become overrun by Himalayan blackberry, English ivy, and other invasive weeds. The garden needs your help to become a healthy ecosystem again!

Task: Weeding, grubbing, and invasive species removal.

What to wear: dress for the weather! Wear long thick pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. Bring a raincoat or a hat and sunscreen, as appropriate.

What to bring: a mask is required when 6-foot social distancing cannot be maintained. Bring a filled water bottle and snacks. You’re welcome to bring gloves and tools, if you want to use your own.

What we provide: gloves, tools, and instruction on how to safely use tools and remove invasive weeds.

Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an attentive adult. This work is around and near sharp prickly plants and can be challenging for young children. We recommend children ages 12 and up for this type of event.

Address and meeting instructions will be sent out to attendees who have registered.

Masks are required.
