BLACKBERRY BE GONE
Tualatin Hills Nature Park, a 222 acre wildlife preserve in the heart of Beaverton, features evergreen deciduous forests, creeks, wetlands, ponds, and meadows, and is the habitat for a variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, and other creatures. It also is host to invasive species that threaten the native flora. Today our group worked to eradicate the Himalayan Blackberry in one small area of the park, part of a larger ongoing effort throughout the year. We worked in pairs with one partner clipping vines while the other partner dug out the root of the plants. Afterward, we warmed up and enjoyed the exhibits at the Nature Park Interpretive Center.
