2014 - Mary Kinnick
Mary Kinnick, a Friends of Mt. Tabor Park member since 2006 and a board member for many years, has been an advocate and activist for maintaining the park’s ecological health. Mary got proactive in the park after a 2005-2006 study documented the terrible ecological state of the park. She served as Weed Warriors coordinator from 2008 to 2015, working closely with volunteers and Portland Parks and Recreation. Under Mary’s leadership, Weed Warriors grew significantly, and her fundraising efforts led to the establishment of an endowment to fund a part-time Stewardship Coordinator to provide professional leadership for the continuing volunteer work removing invasive plants.
