Join Oregon Wild and our partners from around the Eugene/Springfield community to improve the recreational and ecological value of our local stretch of the Middle Fork Willamette River. This event will provide a great opportunity to contribute to a healthy environment by picking up litter, pulling invasive weeds, and caring for native plants; and also a chance to connect with new people and communities. Come prepared to get a little dirty, and we will provide the gloves, trash bags, tools, and pre- and post-work refreshments. Sturdy footwear and work gloves are recommended.

Join the PGE team as we help restore an important natural area! Trillium Creek at Palomino Park is a 16.6 acre green space with a trail and a ravine in West Linn. Ivy has invaded 90% of ground and about 30% of trees. In some areas ivy reaches the tree crowns. The trillium the creek is named for are mostly covered, along with other native plants. The ivy has spread over the years and the goal is to eradicate then maintain with ongoing volunteer efforts to restore this green space.
The area of the pull is shaded and pleasant in hot weather. There will be some opportunity for litter pick up as well during the project, although the area is fairly clean.
All tools and training will be provided. Please wear sturdy, closed toed shoes and long pants.
We will meet starting at 8:45am in the park located at 6400 Palomino Way in West Linn. Parking is available on neighborhood streets.
