The goal of restoration projects in natural areas is to return the ecosystem to a healthy, functioning condition. In degraded natural areas, encroachment by invasive, weedy species like ivy and blackberry leads to increased erosion, poor water quality and low biodiversity. (Biodiversity: The number of different plants and animals native to Gresham/Oregon/Pacific Northwest.)
