Fun for the Entire Family!
A festival to celebrate the accomplishments of WENA and the other partners who have joined together over the past two years
Festivities will include disc golf demonstration, free hot dogs and soft drinks, music, face-painting and activities for the kids, Gresham Fire Department fire truck and more.
Nadaka's partners include St Aidan's Episcopal Church, Trust for Public Lands, Audubon Society of Portland, HB Lee Middle School, People for Parks, Metro, City of Gresham, Eastrose Fellowship Unitarian, Columbia Slough Watershed Council, East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District, SOLV, Rockwood Neighborhood Association and hundreds of volunteers.
These partners and tireless volunteers have been able to acquire with grants and generosity of the Nelson family the 2 acres adjacent to Nadaka Nature Park on the south commonly referred to as the "Nelson Property".
During that time 36 cleanups have been held, 2 DOGIPOTS® installed, bird houses, trash cans, benches, over 1,000 native plants and trees have been planted, trash and invasive’s removed, tools and gloves have been purchased for cleanups, barbed wire has been removed on the north and south edges of the park, and -- the south gate has been opened to the public for the first time.
With all these accomplishments the greatest one has been raising the awareness of Nadaka as an outstanding nature park and the continued partnership building by WENA of businesses, social agencies, and schools in our neighborhood who care about Nadaka and want to help make it even better.
Event sponsors: Metro Nature in Neigh-borhoods, City of Gresham, Friends of Na-daka Park, Wilkes-East Neighborhood Association, St Aidan's Episcopal Church, Eastrose Unitarian Universalist Church, Lost Coast Designs, MBMC Consulting and Albertsons.
