Pictures of before and after garlic mustard pull along SW 16th, near Arnold
Arnold Creek volunteers have made great progress on the Garlic Mustard front by manually removing tons of it from our roadsides and private gardens over the past five years. However, there is still some out there (but much less than there used to be) and volunteers will be back to work this April, probably toward the end of the month.
Please email Liz Marantz firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to join the crew and in April you will get notification when the dates and sites are finalized for the 2014 season.
Workdays can be arranged on private property if you have a Garlic Mustard infestation which is getting away from you. Again, contact Liz.
The March SW News has a pullout section (pages 7-10) with copious information on Garlic Mustard-why it is a problem and how to deal with it.
Neighborhood wide awareness is the key to controlling this plant without resorting to herbicide spraying. Arnold Creek has blazed the trail for volunteer involvement and shown the skeptics that manual control of Garlic Mustard does work. Let’s keep it up!
Metro is refining the Southwest Corridor Plan in preparation for the next Draft Environmental Impact Statement phase that begins in July 2014. Neighborhoods have an opportunity to identify top priority projects (see the list of projects HERE).
The SWNI Transportation Committee recommends that neighborhood associations select their top 3 priority "roadway and active transportation" projects by March 31.

Arnold Creek is fortunate to have an active Neighborhood Emergency Team and you are invited to join. Portland Bureau of Emergency Management plans to offer Basic NET training three more times in 2014, with a goal to graduate a total of 400 NETs in 2014.
