The Friends of Mt. Tabor Park is offering two free activities to learn about the biology, history and culture of Mt. Tabor Park–the Saturday Morning Nature and Art Program and the Urban Nature Series.
The first takes place Saturdays, starting at 10 am and lasting for one to two hours. Supplies for various activities will be provided, except for the bird walks where participants are asked to bring binoculars if they have them.
Activities, like Nature Photography, Mt. Tabor Park Bingo, and Watercolor Magic, are designed to accommodate children ages eight and above, adults and families. A tentative schedule of upcoming activities and registration is available at taborfriends.org/saturday-nature-program.
The Urban Nature Series takes place Sundays 2-4 pm with each session lasting two hours or less. The sessions are designed to accommodate children, adults and families who can manage walking on dirt paths and up and down small hills. Participants must come with appropriate clothing and walking shoes for all types of weather and terrain.
Each month there will be a Mt. Tabor Reservoir History Walk, Native Plants Walk, Tree Walk and Volcanic History of Mt. Tabor Park. Visit taborfriends.org/urban-nature-series to learn more about upcoming sessions and to register.
Participants should meet at the Mt. Tabor visitor center where they will be connected with the activity leader. Contact Hap Pritchard (firstname.lastname@example.org or 503.880.4383) with questions or for more information.
