Priority Areas
Urban and Edge Communities
Location
Camp Terry
Description

The YMCA and the Greenway Trust are partnering to tackle the growing ivy problem at the Camp Terry. Campers and community members have been involved in removing English ivy for many years, but much work remains. English ivy still crowds out native ferns, tree seedlings, and wildflowers; and it has climbed up several trees. During the volunteer event, we will work on removing the ivy to help improve habitat for the Chinook salmon that call the Raging River home.

Project Difficulty
Moderate
Age Restriction
Any participant under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
