Help remove ivy and blackberry in preparation for planting native plants next year. Englewood Park is an historic wooded park in Salem with over 200 Douglas fir and Oregon white oak trees, some that predate the pioneers. It is the first park purchased by the City of Salem in 1926.

This event is a restoration project for the forested area at LeRoy Haagen park. A multitude of animals call this forest home: red tail hawks, native ground bees, rabbits, and is visited by deer and the occasional kestrel and bald eagle.
Typical projects vary depending on the time of year, but include English ivy, Holly, and Himalayan blackberry removal, and mulching for Shiny Geranium and Herb Robert control. When this event began in 2015, there was a near carpet of eight different invasive plants. Because of that, there are very few young native trees. From September to February we will be planting a small number of native seedlings gathered from neighbors.
May 26th from 10 AM to 1 PM
Meet at NE LeRoy Haagen Memorial Park
