Nadaka Park is a beautiful 10-acre natural area tucked away in Rockwood at the former site of the Camp Fire Girl’s Nature Day Camp (Na-Da-Ka). However, the park has slowly deteriorated from its natural state. The Wilkes East Neighborhood Association is working with the City to restore this park. At this event you will need to be prepared to get a little dirty and to have fun by supporting and volunteering by removing invasive plants. Gloves, tools, and water provided (in limited supply) or bring your own. Tools we will use: shovels, rakes, loppers and gloves.
