Please join our stewardship team, led by Mila Carey-Bracke, as we spend the day pulling invasive English Ivy on our beautiful TreeSong land!
English Ivy is an invasive, non-native species which climbs up trees and spreads rapidly across the ground. Ivy can outcompete native plants, reducing animal foraging habitat. It inhibits regeneration of understory plants and kills understory and overstory trees by shading them out. Ivy can cause storm damage to trees due to its added weight in the canopy.
Please come and help us with our restoration efforts and get the opportunity to spend time in the beauty, on the Washougal river, that is TreeSong.
