Spring Equinox Weekend Welcome Spring! (& Scout's 70th Year Celebration)

  • Oxbow Regional Park (map)

Come celebrate spring's return on Equinox Weekend with Judy Todd, NatureConnect NW's founder. How does a tree hugging, nature-loving, activist grandmother celebrate the entry into her 8th decade? In the forest or along the river's edge, on the trails, looking for birds, watching buds emerge, or tracks appear! And, always with friends old and new, family, and a nature-connecting purpose! 

Our reserved campsite is our meet-up spot. A guide or posted directions will be there all day regardless of when you arrive. The day includes wandering along the river's edges, watching for wildlife, hiking, critter tracking, a special presentation at the riparian restoration area, a nature scavenger hunt, sharing nature stories, singing around the campfire and a picnic. WHEW!

To RSVP and for all the key details, including an overnight camping option, contact Judy or call 503-260-4995. 

  • May I bring a gift? We will accept tax-deductible donations for restoration and scholarship programs on behalf of NatureConnect NW.  See our CONTRIBUTION button at the bottom of this page. Sage, sweetgrass, or other sacred medicines are also welcomed and will be used in our programs all year long. 
  • What else should I bring? Binoculars, field guides, pocket knife, your potluck item or lunch, a water bottle, a day pack and waterproof sit-upon. Wear warm clothes and bring an extra pair of socks or shoes in case your feet get wet. (Park entry fee is $5 per car.)
