Marquam Nature Park Work Party

Saturday, April 30, 9:00 am - noon
Location: 12th and Gaines trailhead

Join us on Saturday, April 30, at the 12th and Gaines trailhead for the park. We will be partnering with Friends of Marquam and Portland Parks to take out ivy along the newer parts of the trail—and enjoying the results of Homestead’s persistent efforts to reclaim the trailhead area. 9 to noon is the time: we provide tools, gloves (for kids too) and snacks. All welcome from 6+ and up.
