Volunteers wrangled ivy as part of a work party to remove English ivy on Saturday around the zig-zag pedestrian ramp at Oak Street in downtown Port Angeles.

More than a dozen people took on the task of removing tangles of the non-native ivy from the city-owned hillside, which will be replanted with slope-stabilizing native plants.
