“Free the Trees” in Waluga Park – Feb. 28, 2015

Our plan to help Waluga Park is well underway. We have stopped the attack on our trees in about half the acreage, but now we need to finish the rest of the park. English Ivy is creeping up most of the park’s majestic trees and without help, many of them will die.

Friends of Waluga Park is sponsoring regular work parties to “Free the Trees!” We will cut the ivy growing around the base of the trunks. This will give the trees a fighting chance until the City of Lake Oswego can properly treat the park.

Please come to the work party on Saturday, Feb. 28th from 9:30am to noon. You will need to wear sturdy shoes, long pants and long sleeves. Rubberized garden gloves are recommended.

Please bring the following tools if you have them:

  • Loppers
  • Clippers
  • Hand Saw (no power tools or herbicides)

We will meet in the East Waluga Park parking lot near the covered picnic shelter, rain or shine! See the difference that you can make in just a few hours!
