We are thrilled to announce that our Nadaka Neighborhood Park project grant submitted to the Oregon Parks & Recreation has been awarded funds in the amount $523,480. Nadaka was ranked #11 out of 35 applications and only 22 were funded.
The Nadaka project continues to move forward not only because it is a wonderful project but because of the partnerships we have established over the years. The City of Gresham worked closely with the Friends of Nadaka, Audubon Society of Portland and Columbia Slough Watershed Council preparing and presenting this grant. The cooperation and support is amazing.
From 9 am to Noon there will be a cleanup of the park removing invasives, trash and mulching around boulders along NE Glisan.
Beginning at Noon until 3 pm there will be live music featuring the NW PanMan-Terry Baber and Brad Hirsch, face painting and activities for children, the Audubon Society education birds, free hot dogs and drinks (while they last), voter registration opportunities, and information from organizations working on the Nadaka Nature Park and Garden Project.
Afternoon activities will be on the 2 acre parcel at NE Glisan & NE 175th. Parking is available at St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church or on NE Pacific at NE 175th, Gresham.
A group of young people from Tivnu came to Nadaka on July 15, 2013 to help with the building of the park. They worked on mulching around the boulders along NE Glisan. The students were from different states around the country but mainly back East. We really appreciate the fact they chose Nadaka as one of their places to do some community volunteering. They worked really hard on a hot day. To find out more about this wonderful organization check out the Tivnu website. More photographs of the work they did can be found in Photo gallery.
The awesome Four Cities Peer Court group worked at Nadaka on Wednesday, June 26th. They not only removed all the remaining weeds from the future community garden but they cleared and mulched this sweet little unofficial nature based play area on the meadow. Thank you all for your hard work.
On June 15 & 16, 2013 the 671st Engineering Company of the Army Reserves came out to Nadaka to move boulders out along NE Glisan. They also worked with other volunteers removing weeds from the future community garden area.
The 671st and other volunteers put in a total of 690.5 hours and we can’t thank them enough. Also Jazzy Bagels donated their delicious bagels for the volunteers. Check out more photos from the event on the Photos page.
