Friends of Secor Park
SALEM, OR - Join Salem's Parks Department, the Marion Soil and Water Conservation District, and Marion County Weed Control District for a project at Secor Park.

WHERE: 5453 Liberty Road South - connected to Crossler Middle School.
Secor Neighborhood Park, with its rolling meadows, and mature-growth trees, is a piece of nature in the city. However, the dirt trails are narrow and need to be cleaned up, and the forested area is becoming overrun with English ivy, Himalayan blackberries and Shiny geranium. We are asking the community come together to improve this public land by re-establishing the trails system and removing noxious weeds from the forest and creek.
Participants should wear sturdy shoes and clothes for working outside. If the weather is wet, rain gear is helpful. Tools will be provided at check-in, and volunteers will receive instructions on removal techniques and safety procedures.
To register or ask questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
