Restoration at Dirksen Nature Park
Restoration volunteers will help to remove invasive species to prepare Dirksen Nature Park sites for upcoming Friends of Trees plantings as well as extensive restoration work to be done over the next 18 months by Tualatin Riverkeepers. Invasives will include English and Atlantic ivy, holly, and more. This will also be an opportunity to learn more about the site and identify some native species that will thrive with further efforts such as salal, nootka rose, several tree species, snowberry, etc. Please join us to improve this beautiful park!
