Raleigh Park Tree Walk

Join neighbors Betsy Ubiergo and Brooke Bachelor for an “awe walk” as we visit key “mother trees” in the lovely Raleigh Park neighborhood. We’ll share information about the healing energy of forest bathing and how spending time with trees can positively impact our physical and mental health. Please join us for this relaxing 1 hour/ 1 mile loop walk. Come see your neighborhood through new eyes. Start at the West Slope Community Library.

 Ivy Removal in Cedar Mill

West Tualatin View Elementary School

8800 SW Leahy Road, Portland 97225

The trees behind West Tualatin View Elementary School need to be rescued from the invasive ivy that threatens to starve and topple them. This first effort is to clip the ivy from the trunks. All ages are welcome to help. Children will need to be supervised by an adult. Please wear grubby, washable clothing, long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy, closed-toe shoes or boots. Bring gloves and pruners if you have them, as well as water and snacks. You are welcome to just show up, but registering helps us provide enough tools. 



Thursday, October 26, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.

Tree Talks Meetup

in West Slope

Brooke Bachelor hosts us again - indoors this time. We’re hoping to include a discussion with a local arborist about ways to achieve one of our goals: the hiring of a urban arborist by Washington County. Stay tuned for more information!

Meet with other tree enthusiasts

in Cedar Mill.

Susan Weinberg will be hosting a get-together to share the small acreage she is working to restore and preserve as a natural reserve among the houses of Cedar Mill. Get to know your tree-loving neighbors and build community. Bring a chair, a beverage and, if you like, something to grill. And if we're lucky, we'll be able to visit with the next-door llamas!
