BANDON — The Bandon Parks and Recreation Commission is seeking volunteers to help remove ivy in the Woolen Mill area on Arbor Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 25.
English ivy is considered a noxious weed and is prevalent in the Bandon area. It grows on many surfaces including tree trunks and can eventually choke oxygen and nutrients from the tree and kill it if not removed.
Snacks and drinks will be provided at the sign-in table located in the parking area at Fourth and Grand. Those attending area asked to bring gloves, pruners and wheel barrows if they have them. Trash bags will be provided. The terrain is uneven, so proper shoes and clothing should be worn.
