Braiding Reed Canary Grass at Knez Wetland

Knez Cleanup 6/17

Knez wetland in Tigard preserves one of the few remaining tufted hairgrass prairies in the Portland Metro area. Unfortunately, the native shrubs and grasses there are being overrun by nonnative reed canary grass - a common wetland intruder. We’ll experiment with braiding techniques to control the expansion of these tall grasses, create makeshift paths for easier management access, and prevent crowding of other vital species. Everyone is welcome to attend, but it helps if you know how to braid! We’ll also gather some trash and spread some native seed while we’re there. from 9:30-12pm
