The changes include the addition of a new building along the east boundary of the campus facing NE 165th St, opening two driveways along NE 165th St, and the future removal of an older building along NE 162nd.

In honor of Father’s Day why not spend the morning at Nadaka Park on Saturday, June 15th helping cleanup the park by removing invasives, clearing weeds from the future community garden and begin moving the boulders out along NE Glisan.

The Army Reservists will be there to do the boulder moving but there will be a lot to do in the park. Cleanup activities will begin at 9AM and end around 1PM.

Come dressed for the weather and we will have work gloves, shovels, and other equipment needed for the cleanup. Refreshments will be provided for volunteers. Bring your Dad or any other special person.

This event is sponsored by Friends of Nadaka Park with support from the Columbia Watershed Council. Learn more about Friends of Nadaka Park at http://friendsofnadaka.org/
