No ivy towers here! Tryon Creek Ivy Pulling – Saturday, March 10, 2018

Connect PDX arrived at Tryon Creek on a beautiful Saturday morning geared up to do battle with invasive ivy. Whether we engaged in extreme ivy pulling or a less exhausting, ivy-maintenance approach, the group enjoyed coming together as environmental stewards of Oregon’s only state park in a metropolitan area. We learned how important ivy removal is to keep the natural vegetation in place in this 650-acre day use area. March, 10th was another rewarding experience for Connect PDX professionals that network while volunteering and making a difference in the community. You can too.
