Join us for our inaugural volunteering event at this lovely landscaped parkway on the border of Columbia City and Seward Park. Towering Douglas-firs, majestic madronas, and flowering apple trees beautify the neighborhood, but these trees are at risk of weeds like ivy and blackberry that threaten the trees' health and longevity. Join us as we work to begin removing weeds and protecting our woody neighbors!
