CANCELED Portland Parks work party Jan 7

Januarv 7th Work Partv

SW Trails and Portland Parks are CANCELING the monthly work party for January in George Himes Park scheduled for this Thursday January 7th. The ground is not likely to thaw enough for us to conduct the work on SW Trail #3 and morning road conditions getting to the site could make for unsafe driving. We will pick up this work in George Himes on February 4th our next work party. If you have questions contact me at or 503-753-8186. Dave Manville
Project: Replace degraded stairs, trail armoring, install grade dips
Trail:     George Himes Trails – SWT #3
Meeting location: SW Iowa St. and SWT #3

This months 1st Thursday Work Party with Portland Parks and Recreation City Nature will be up at Himes Park on Terwilliger on Thursday January 9th from 9AM to Noon.

Our monthly work party with Portland Parks and recreation City Nature and SW will be in George HImes Park this Thursday Jan 7th from 9AM to Noon. We will be meeting at the bottom of SW Trail #3 at Iowa Street a block West of Corbett and almost under I-5. Work for this Month will include replacing some damaged steps, armoring a section of the trail and installing some grade dips to help get water flowing off to the side of the trail. The work will be conducted about 1/8 mile down from Terwilliger and 1/8 mile up from the bottom at Iowa. We would love to have you join us. It is a little iffy on the Weather but looks to be no rain and 40s, if ground is frozen or site is dangerous we will post a cancellation to eMail and Facebook.

Here is a link to Google maps for the meet point –>

Parks will provide some coffee, water, snacks, and all the gloves-tools and material for the project. You should wear sturdy work clothing and boots. This will be our first work party of 2016 and the first of 2 at George Himes SW Trail #3. There is a lot to get done on this project so all the help we can get will be appreciated.

If you have questions, contact me below
