Help our community fight invasive species this spring by attending a community meeting March 4th or 6th. The Oregon Agriculture Department has been focusing its attention on the Cedar Mill and Bethany area due to the rapid proliferation of the invasive Japanese Beetle in our neighborhood. The species is a serious threat to home and commercial gardens, and the ODA will be conducting an eradication program this spring with the help of the affected community.
There are community meetings planned for the next few months, including at Leedy Grange on Saturday March 4th from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm or Cedar Mill Library meeting rooms on March 6th from 5:15 – 7:15 pm to learn more. To learn more, see:
