Improve Blandford Canyon by Removing Invasive Ivy (age 10+) *MLK Weekend 2020*

Join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King through meaningful service to our community: "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Watershed Alliance works to educate and engage community members to be active stewards of SW Washington natural legacy, with a focus on creeks, lakes, and other water bodies. We educate children and adults, while giving them hands on opportunities to participate in the restoration and protection of waterways.

English ivy is an invasive species that spreads quickly and climbs up all the trees. When it takes over an area, the native animals and plants that are originally from here are negatively impacted. Join the Watershed Alliance to remove invasive plant species and help protect the natural area in Blandford Canyon! We will remove the ivy with loppers, shovels, rakes, as well as team work. Closed-toed shoes and comfort working outdoors is required.

Please dress for the weather and bring a water bottle and if you have a pair of gardening gloves, please bring them. Tools will be provided!

This is always one of our biggest events of the year and we love seeing the community come together for such a great cause!
