No Ivy League

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Introduced to the area as an ornamental garden plant, English Ivy is spreading quickly in Portland’s Forest Park, choking out other native plant life. The No Ivy League is a group of people who have declared war on the so-called “green plague,” volunteering their time for the hard work of removal and restoration.
