LOHS Track Teams Pull Ivy and Repair Trails August 27

Kudos to the 70+ Lake Oswego High School students who spent time in Springbrook Park this past Thursday.  As part of their regular Cross Country practice, they split their time between training and hauling gravel to repair a quarter mile of trail or pulled invasive Ivy along stream corridors. The results are better and safer trails that will stand up to the coming rains while the Ivy pulling is part of a longer term effort for watershed improvement of the two streams that start in the Park.

Also, a special thanks to coaches Eric Lider and Liz Howells for managing the energy and work of the student volunteers.
