You’re invited to a work party along North Bank Trail

If you like digging out blackberries, you’re in luck!

WeBikeEugene was contacted by the Walama Restoration Project, asking that we invite our readers to a volunteer work party from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday (Feb. 20) to help with an ongoing effort to rehabilitate and revegetate the Whilamut Natural Area along the North Bank Path (just north of Knickerbocker Bridge).


Members of Walama Restoration Project and volunteers will meet at the site in East Alton Baker Park to hand-pull small weeds and dig out himalayan blackberries.

WRP is working to reclaim native prairie habitat along the Willamette River to boost local biodiversity, improve forage for native pollinator species and help preserve the Willamette Valley’s biological legacy.

If you can’t make this one, WRP plans more work parties throughout the year.
