Join us as we help beautify our community, and improve local ecosystems by reintroducing native species to our local parks.
Please be sure to indicate you are attending if you plan on joining. Friends of Trees requests that we give them a heads up if we have large groups, so it's important to have a gauge of how many folks are attending.
This event is child friendly
Friends of trees is excited to partner with Portland OIC, Portland Parks & Recreation, the Columbia Slough Watershed Council, and Friends of the Columbia Children’s Arboretum with support from the Port of Portland and East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District to restore a part of one of NE Portland’s “hidden gems”: the Columbia Children’s Arboretum. We will be planting native trees and shrubs and removing invasive species including Himalayan Blackberry and English Ivy.
Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. There is a short walk of approximately 5 to 10 minutes from the parking area to the planting area. The event will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun!
