Let's Pull Together

The Portage Environmental Board will undertake an aggressive plan to rid the City of Portage of invasive plant species such as Purple Loosestrife, Garlic Mustard, and Phragmites. In order to execute this plan fully, the Environmental Board will need many volunteers to help pull invasive species out of city parks and other locations throughout the city. The Environmental Board has scheduled several “pulls’ in the spring and summer of 2014. Interested volunteers are encouraged to contact the Portage Environmental Board at ruth1281@att.net to request additional information.  The dates and identified locations are listed below.  Pull times start at 9 a.m. and generally run through 12 noon (weather permitting).
