Cannot open an SVN repo

I cannot open any of my SVN repos. They are all clean and functional. Here is the message that Sourcetree is giving me:

"The path /Users/caedmonjudd/Projects/mars_portal does not refer to a working copy for Mercurial, Git or Subversion"

Not sure why it's saying this.

SourceTree isn't actually a Subversion client for working copies, it's a Git and Mercurial client that can also interoperate with Subversion servers. So you can clone from a Subversion URL and create a linked Git or Mercurial repository locally which you can use to collaborate with the Subversion server (while still getting much of the added power of Git/Hg locally), but you can't point SourceTree at a native SVN working copy.
