Family-friendly Day of Service Project Site, sponsored by Yale Alumni Association of Oregon & SouthWest Washington and co-sponsored by YaleWomen Portland.
Notable Yale alumnus Aldo Leopold said “The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants, and animals, or collectively: the land.” Enlarge boundaries with your local Yale community at this all-ages, family friendly project to remove invasive blackberry bushes and mulch trails in the forested areas of Evergreen Park. This project is part of an ongoing park adoption effort by Resources for Health (founded at Yale), in partnership with the City of Hillsboro, to support native biodiversity in the park while enhancing trails to promote nature exploration opportunities for local residents, especially children. Gloves, tools, and all necessary guidance will be provided. Please wear sturdy shoes, dress for the weather, and don’t forget your reusable water bottle! “That land is a community is the basic concept of ecology, but that land is to be loved and respected is an extension of ethics.” – Aldo Leopold (FES, 1909)
