May 23, 2015 Woodmansee Park Ivy removal

The last scheduled ivy removal event at Woodmansee Park this spring is Saturday, May 23, 2015.  We'll be working on both ground ivy and tree ivy.  All tools and gloves provided.  Time is 9 AM to Noon.  Removing ivy can be a dirty job so come prepared in long-sleeved clothing and sturdy shoes.

To register, please contact Tibby Larson, Parks Volunteer Coordinator, (503) 589-2197 or e-mail TALARSON@CityofSalem.NET.

We'll have an orientation for volunteers, but if you want a head start, watch this video from Portland No-Ivy League ---

May 1, 2015 Ivy removal at Waldo Park

 Photos from the May 1, 2015 Waldo Park Ivy pull are in this Picasa album taken by Stephanie Hazen.

The top of the thick ivy mat has been removed.  Now we will return several times to remove the roots of the ivy.  Stay tuned for more work parties at this park to accomplish this.
