Calling all volunteers to pull together! Whether you call them weeds, non-native plants, or invasive species, one thing holds true- plants like English ivy and Armenian blackberry (though yummy!) can harm native plants and impact our trails. This year, join Greenbelt Land Trust as we remove weeds from Forest Dell Park.
Greenbelt protected Forest Dell as an urban park in 1997. Today it is managed by the City of Corvallis for trails and open space. Come pitch in to help reduce the spread of invasive plants. By pulling together, we can protect native habitats and the wildlife that depend on them.

Difficulty level: moderate. Volunteers will be pulling invasive plants including holly and spurge laurel. All youth under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Any questions? Please email GLT’s Stewardship & Volunteer Specialist, Elizabeth.
