Here's a photo from the January 10th cleanup at Nadaka. This photo is of the ivy piles (circles) that volunteer Bus Gibson made by himself during the cleanup. There were approximately 12 volunteers including 2 students from HB Lee Middle School and 2 students from Mt Hood Community College's Natural Resource Club. (These four individuals had all volunteered at previous cleanups).

In addition to removing invasive's inside Nadaka the trash was picked up on the adjoining Nelson property. In the future all cleanups will include removing trash and debris from the Nelson property.

We look forward to more neighborhood volunteers at the March 27th cleanup!
