Gladstone Nature Park Work Party

Gladstone Nature Park is a nearly 12 acre natural space featuring a system of chipped trails leading to lovely basalt outcroppings, and a paved pedestrian trail from one end to the other,crossing a grassy meadow. This park sits on 40 feet of basalt and is a mixed oak/conifer habitat. Recently this regional park was threatened with sale and basalt strip mining, which did not happen (to the extent feared). Instead a group was formed to protect, clean up and restore this lovely nature park: FOGNAP=Friends Of Gladstone Nature Park. FOGNAP meets at the last Saturday each month from Jan-Oct, 9 AM-noon. This 501(c)3 organization is working to restore the park to its original natural habitat. They've made a huge difference in a fairly short time, come and be part of the nature park love! Let's meet and help them out. There are baby trees to pamper, wood chips to spread, blackberries and poison oak to conquer, trash to collect, and trails to define. Wear long sleeves, long pants, socks, gloves if you decide to do battle with those noble and formidable adversaries of poison oak or blackberries. There's plenty of gentler ways to help out without risking a rash or thorny punishment. Personally, I've been liberating an absolutely fabulous large basalt formation from an oppressive Blackberry briar. Very satisfying. Meet in the parking lot at 9 AM or join the volunteers later, just come. 18111-18395 Webster Rd, Gladstone, Or 97027. There's a parking lot across from the the SDA convention grounds. Contact Dr. Mindy Curry for more information. (503) 995-8674
