Thorndyke Park - Ivy and blackberry removal01/27/2019
While the exact tasks can vary, our projects focus on improving the forests and parks in our local cities. Healthy and thriving forests are vital to our community because they absorb and filter rain water, produce clean oxygen, provide living spaces for wildlife, and create a place for people to connect with the outdoors.
In order to help create healthy forests, the work can include:
• Removing aggressive weeds (like English Ivy or Himalayan Blackberry)
• Maintaining areas where these weeds have been removed

What to Bring
We provide all the tools, gloves, and other restoration supplies, but if you have a favorite pair of clippers and gloves, feel free to bring those. Please dress in layers and consider the weather, sturdy shoes or boots, long pants & long sleeved shirts will protect you from plant scratches. Bring raingear for rainy weather & sunscreen for sun. Also, bring a filled water bottle and snack if you like.
Where to Meet
Meet by the bus stop sign on the north west side of the park, on Thorndyke Ave. near the north end of the park. Look for the EVENT signs.
Where to Park
Parking is on the street. The west side is also used by bus riders, so you may need to park on a side street. Metro bus 33 & 31 stop right in front of the park and the 19 & 24 & 31 stop one block away at 28th and Blaine. Get off at 28th Ave. West and Blaine and walk to block east to the park.
