No Ivy Day 2011
October 22, 2011 | 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. | Free | All Ages
@ Gateway Green, North of NE 99th & NE Pacific

Help remove invasive plant species on the Gateway Green site. We’ll focus on cutting the ivy that’s growing up the trees and around the base of trees. Light refreshments, gloves and tools will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Don’t forget your grubby clothes and a water bottle!

Gateway Green is envisioned as a 35-acre open space and recreation area, as well as a working test site for “green” innovation. Connected to Portland’s famed 40 Mile Loop (a pedestrian and bike route originally proposed by the Olmstead Brothers in 1904 and now nearly complete), and currently reachable by foot, bike, car and light rail, Gateway Green could become a regional destination for locals, tourists, and green industry professionals.

While demonstrating new sustainable technology, Gateway Green could also provide recreation for area residents and bicycle enthusiasts from across the region and be a powerful “beacon” for Portland and Oregon — highly visible to 65 million people per year as they pass through Gateway Green by car, truck, MAX light rail and bike.
