Its happening Saturday, Sept. 27th.  The Fourth Annual Nadaka Community Festival & Cleanup.  Nadaka is a beautiful 10 acre forest where we will be removing invasives and litter in the morning from 9:00am to Noon.  You can pre-register with SOLVE for this event here.  If you would like to volunteer to help with the Festival beginning at 11:00am with setup, etc. you can do that at our partner, Columbia Slough Watershed Council’s website.

 

The Nadaka Community Festival will be held after the cleanup from Noon to 3:00pm where volunteers will be treated to hot dogs, music and activities for the family.

SOLVE Cleanup a Success at Nadaka

The SOLVE Cleanup at Nadaka on Saturday, Sept. 28th was outstanding. In spite of the weather we had 57 volunteers for a total of 123 volunteer hours.  . Volunteers came from Wells Fargo Bank, Sam Barlow High School and The Center for Advanced Learning as well as the neighborhood.
Because of the bad weather SOLVE had for the first time ever cancelled their Beach and Riverside Cleanup on the 28th.  Lucky for us their inland cleanups remained scheduled even though rain was predicted. Their Beach and Riverside Cleanup has been rescheduled for October 12th and October 26th.  Check the SOLVE website to register for one of those cleanups.
All the weeds were removed from the future community garden and it looks great.
Jazzy Bagel of Gresham furnished delicious bagels for the volunteers.
