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.

While the hair nets and aprons didn’t make for attractive Instagram posts, the uniforms punctuated the rewarding experience these small business professionals had helping the community.
