In partnership with Clark County Parks, the City of Vancouver invites you to join Vancouver's Ivy Near Elimination (V.I.N.E) Squad! Every Thursday, June 20 - August 15 (excluding 4th of July), volunteers will remove ivy and other invasive species from LeRoy Haagen Memorial Park and Tenny Creek Park. Events are from 9 a.m. to noon. Participate for the entire summer or drop in when you can!
English Ivy is Class C Noxious Weed in Washington. It threatens trees, understory plants, and wildlife. Learn how to identify and control this invasive plant and help stop the spread in our community. Get to know like-minded community members, enjoy the outdoors, and make a positive impact on our environment.
Training, gloves, tools, water, and snacks will be provided. This opportunity is family friendly and great for teens. People of all ages and abilities are welcome! Volunteers should dress for the weather and wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.
Youth under 18 must fill out the minor consent form, have it signed by parent or guardian and bring it to their first event. This form can be found by copying the web address below and pasting it into the URL bar at the top of your screen.
