Ever wonder about those cute little ferns that pop out at this time of year? They are licorice ferns and they thrive when deciduous trees lose their leaves and more sunlight reaches bare branches and the ground. Licorice ferns die off in early summer when deciduous leaves return and rains abate.
Join us for a park cleanup in partnership with SOLVE and Willamette Riverkeeper on Saturday, April 20, from 9am-noon! Help us get the park ready for spring visitors and enjoy caring for this green gem in the midst of our urban community. Please register in advance — ages 10 and over only please.
