Learning About Native Plants when The Columbia Slough came to Rm 13!

The Columbia Slough which is at the old Whitaker School site, right on Whitaker Ponds, off Columbia Blved came to Rm 13 yesterday to teach us about RIPARIAN plants!  We explored the native plants of Portand and our beautifulforests.  We learned that ENGLISH IVY and HIMALAYAN BLACKBERRY are invasive plants that can be very harmful to other plants and species!  Ewww...cut down that English Ivy and pull Himalayan Blackberry whenever you see it!  We will be visiting the Slough in a couple weeks to learn more about MACRO-INVERTEBRATES!
