Join us to celebrate the official opening of Nadaka Nature Park & Garden in Gresham this Saturday, April 4th! The new park features community gardens, a nature-based play area and picnic shelter, as well as a 10-acre forest! You can meet Audubon Society of Portland’s education birds, learn from Slough School, and help spread seeds on the new eco-lawn. A nature play expert from ONPLAY will also be on hand to demonstrate the ways the nature play area can be used, and there will be refreshments and fun activities for the whole family! Watch the video below to learn more, and read more after the break.

Nadaka Nature Park is open thanks to the great efforts of dedicated community members and the support of many local and regional partners, including Metro, EMSWCD, Columbia Slough Watershed Council, Friends of Nadaka, Audubon Society of Portland, The Trust for Public Land, and the City of Gresham. See the full list of supporters and learn more at the Friends of Nadaka website. We are proud to have helped acquire the 2 acre area the new park features were built on, and to have assisted with planning and capital expenditures. We hope to see you there this Saturday, April 4th!

When: Saturday, April 4th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
