Community members are going to help clean up their Bend neighborhoods this weekend. The citywide “Let’s Pull Together” event runs Saturday 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Volunteers will clean debris, plant native pollinators and pull noxious weeds. There will be multiple locations around Bend for volunteers to help out.
“There will be weed experts on site to let folks know what to pull, what not to pull, so that we’re getting the bad ones not the good ones,” said Julia Craig, Bend Code Enforcement Officer.
Afterward, there will be a wrap-up celebration at the Westside Venue in the Old Mill District.
Volunteers can sign up at this link.
