Organize Your Space

Are you looking for a way to keep your storage unit slightly more organized?

With the addition of shelving, much more can be fit into the 5×5 units—with the additional plus of being able to quickly see exactly what you have in storage.

Search and Destroy

Blackberry Search and Destroy Work Party at Mount Pisgah

Date: Jun 18, 2016
Times:Saturday, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Location: Mount Pisgah Arboretum

Venue: Mount Pisgah Arboretum

Address:34901 Frank Parrish Rd, Eugene, OR 97405

Admission:Free

Lane County is full of natural beauty. Unlike other places, we hardly have to water our gardens to find them springing up with fresh food, gorgeous blooms—and weeds.

Some invasive species like blackberries threaten our natural vegetation. That’s why a work party is put together each year at Mt. Pigsah, to do a little Search & Destroy!

Have some gardening tools in your storage unit? Maybe it’s time to get them out and put them to good use! Bring what you have—but if you lack the tools, they will be provided onsite. Help keep Lane County free of invasive species, and beautiful for years to come.
