Volunteer at the 7th Annual Nadaka Community Festival This Saturday Aug., 12th!

Celebrate Nadaka Nature Park – be a volunteer!

Celebrate Nadaka Nature Park and volunteer at the 7th Annual Nadaka Festival on Saturday, August 12th. Nadaka Nature Park, situated between NE Glisan & NE Pacific at NE 175th, is a delightful 10-acre natural space acquired by the City of Gresham in 1995. The park had only limited access until the purchase of adjacent 2 acres in 2009. Today, thanks to a network of diverse partners including the Columbia Slough Watershed Council, the Nadaka Nature Park and Garden Project has developed a thriving community garden, nature-based play area, and provides a wide range of community programs. Help us celebrate the beautiful growth of this community and natural space by donating your time to the festival!
