Walk & Talk at Nadaka

Come to Nadaka this Saturday,     April 12th at 10am for a Walk & Talk thru Nadaka.  We will meet at the North gate – NE 175th & NE Pacific.  There will be an Invasive Species Specialist from the City of Gresham, someone from the Columbia Slough Watershed Council to talk about the Slough and a Camp Fire Girl who actually attended Nadaka when she was a Camp Fire Girl.

It is a beautiful time at Nadaka right now with the Trilliums and Cherry trees in bloom and the sun is supposed to be shining as well.  A walk in the woods is definitely good for your health and this is right in your neighborhood.
