Hiking during COVID-19 pandemic

  • All participants must wear facial masks and practice social distancing during Senior Healthy Hikers group events.
  • We will no longer carpool to the trailhead. Participants are responsible for their own transportation.

The Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge is a complex of wetlands, meadows, and forest, mainly fed by springs, at the base of the Willamette River bluff in Sellwood. Waterfowl can be seen at any time of the year, and beaver and nutria are active in the backwaters. We will hike the Bluff Trail, which can be muddy in spots, but includes railed boardwalks and viewing platforms. The wooded trail goes through cottonwoods, Oregon ash, and cedars, and skirts algae-covered ponds. Above the trail is a large wildlife mural on the walls of the Portland Memorial Mausoleum. At over 40,000 square feet, it is the largest hand-painted mural in the country.We will walk for a short distance on the Springwater Trail, which gets lots of bike traffic, so we will need to go single-file and stay to the far right side of the trail to avoid bikers. Plan to bring water and snacks. No group lunch is planned for this hike, but there are a variety of small restaurants on 13th Avenue, if anyone is interested in having lunch before returning to Gresham. Wear good hiking shoes and dress for the weather. Hiking poles are optional. Restrooms are available at the trailhead.For more information about this hike please contact Mary Ann Buck at 971-344-1946 or buckbanter@gmail.com.Senior Healthy Hikers asks that participants be 50 or older.

What is middle housing?
Middle housing refers to housing types that fill the gap between small apartments and detached single dwellings including duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, cottage clusters, and townhouses.

Get involved

Join us for the Middle Housing Project's first virtual open house Wed. Dec. 16 from 5:30-7:30pm. Please register for the event if you would like to attend. Learn about what to expect from the project and talk to City staff about your questions at this virtual event. You can learn more about the project on the middle housing page. Gresham's Middle Housing Project includes development code changes that will allow more choices in the types of housing city residents may live in during every phase of their lives. In 2019, the Oregon State legislature passed House Bill (HB) 2001 to help increase the amount and types of housing available to Oregonians. The bill requires Gresham to update the development code by June 30, 2022 to:

  • Allow duplexes on any lot that allows detached single dwellings; and
  • Allow all middle housing types in any area zoned to allow detached single dwellings.

These changes will create more opportunities for renters and homeownership across multiple price levels, and great variety in housing options for a wide range of household structures.

Simple Solution. Big Reward.
After big holiday meals, no one likes to be stuck doing the clean-up. But if you aren't careful with leftover gravy, pan drip-pings and sauces a grease-clogged drain could ruin your holiday and cost you a bundle.

When fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes causing messy sewer backups and expensive cleanup and repair.
The solution: Pour the grease into a can, freeze it, and toss the can in the trash!
