The annual No Ivy Day event is coming to Gresham. Volunteers will be pulling invasive ivy and other weeds at sites across Portland and neighboring cities. Get to know Nadaka Nature Park and help protect the diversity and beauty of this unique natural area. This 10-acre forest in northwest Gresham was saved from development because it served as a day camp for the Camp Fire organization for many decades. Today Nadaka is a city park that provides an island of native habitat and a place for the community to access and learn about nature.

Come enjoy this neighborhood treasure and help restore the forest understory. We will provide gloves, tools, training, and refreshments.

Show Is In The Sky!

Where: Northeast Sky,

Grab a lawn chair and a blanket -- and watch the show!

The annual August Perseid meteor shower probably ranks as the all-time favorite meteor shower of the year. This major shower takes place during the lazy, hazy days of summer, when many families are on vacation. And what could be more fun than watching this summertime classic?

No matter where you live, the 2014 Perseid meteor shower will probably be at its best on the nights of August 10-13, especially August 12 when the shower peaks. Try the nights before and after that, too. Before dawn viewing is best. You'll often see 50 to 100 meteors per hour. They radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus the Hero, and are typically fast and bright meteors frequently leaving persistent trails. Each year, the Perseid's combine with the Delta Aquarid meteor shower to produce the year’s most dazzling display of shooting stars! (Tips for best viewing below.)
