Tools, gloves, and light refreshments will be provided. Dress to work in natural areas: long pants, warm cloths, and closed-toe sturdy shoes. Please bring a water bottle and a friend!

Backyard Habitat Certification

In collaboration with our partner, Audubon Society of Portland, we would like to encourage everyone to enroll in their Backyard Habitat Certification Program. flower
If you live in Gresham and register before the end of the year the City of Gresham will reimburse you the $35 registration fee. A special technician will come out and give you great advice about native plants and birds as well as a discount to purchase native plants.  If you don’t get registered before the end of the year it is still well worth the $35.
Give yourself and the birds a gift and make your yard more lovely and a better home for birds.

Cleanup at Nadaka

Rain or shine.  Come dressed for weather.  Help improve Nadaka by removing invasives, trail maintenance, weeding planted beds and litter removal. Work gloves and tools provided.  Refreshments for volunteers. Learn which plants are native to Nadaka and which are invasives and need to be removed. Even if you can only volunteer for One Hour it will help.  There is so much to be done at Nadaka to keep it looking like the wonderful park it is.

SOLVE Earth Day Cleanup A Success

SOLVE Cleanup at Nadaka on April 26th was a success for everyone.  37 volunteers came out to help remove invasives for this Earth Day cleanup with SOLVE. We logged 112 hours of volunteer time and filled a 40 cu yard dumpster. Some did take time out to enjoy Turtle Rock.          A big thank you to Jazzy Bagel for the wonderful bagels.
