Friends of Tideman Johnson Fall Schedule


By Marianne Colgrove

Hey all Fabulous Friends of Tideman Johnson!

This Sunday is the autumnal equinox, which is another way of saying, Summer’s over, let’s go work in the park!
We will be convening in Tideman Johnson Park the first Saturday of each month, 9am – noon. Our dates this fall are:
  • October 5, 2013
  • November 2, 2013
  • December 4, 2013
As always, we’ll have tools and refreshments, and we welcome volunteers of all ages. We’ll send out more information before each work party.
On October 12th, we are participating in the Parke Diem – a huge, city-wide Portland Parks volunteer event. We will be working at our neighboring natural area Park – Errol Heights – which is just upstream from Tideman Johnson. More info will be forthcoming, but mark you calendars:
I’m looking forward to another great year, and hope to see you all out there!
