Join the Friends of Mt. Tabor Park as a Weed Warrior! Spend the morning (9 a.m. to 12 p.m.) outside at Mt. Tabor, a cinder cone volcano in SE Portland, and help restore the health of this unique park. The Weed Warriors will be removing invasive plants including Himalayan blackberry and English ivy.
Wear long sturdy pants such as jeans or carhartts, long sleeves and closed-toe ankle supporting shoes. Bring a water bottle and if you have them work gloves, a trowel, and/or hand clippers. Be prepared to have fun and feel good taking care of our Mt. Tabor Park.
Driving Directions: Enter park at 60th Ave & Salmon Drive up past the reservoirs; the parking lot is at the top of the hill on the left. Meet at the Visitor’s Center.
