A Journey Back In Time
The historic Zimmerman House was built in 1874 and was home to three generations of the Zimmerman Family. Their furnishings and personal articles remain in this two-story Victorian home, including children’s toys, games, Christmas postcards, and winter clothing. This annual evening tour will be held on Tuesday, December 9th and December 16th from 3pm-8pm.

Please reserve the time you’d like to visit the house, and give yourself approximately 45 minutes to explore both floors of this heritage home.

Parking is extremely limited, so please consider carpooling.

Admission is free, but the suggested donation for this special event is $5 per person for ages 18 and older.

Help A Little, or Help A Lot
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.
