Mt Williams Park

Ride or walk the new trail connections on the Westside Regional Trail and explore the side trails that connect into the neighborhoods. We will be on the lookout for birds of prey flying high above and signs of the forest creatures that are most active after the human neighbors have gone to bed each night.

Directions: From SW Hart Rd., go north on SW 160th Ave. until it dead ends at the gravel parking lot. By bike or walking take the Westside Regional Trail to the crest of Mt. Williams south of Davis Rd.

Vista Brook Park

Sunday, May 4, 2014 NEW DATE

Travel the Fanno Creek Trail to Vista Brook Park. This newly restored site features a new playground and paved trails, but most importantly a viewing platform over the pond. We will explore the pond and wetland that exist in this hidden park.

Directions: Turn south off of SW Scholls Ferry Rd. onto SW 88th Ave. Follow the road around to the parking lot. By bike or on foot, access the park from the Fanno Creek Trail between Garden Home Recreation Center and SW 90th Ave.

Pioneer Park

Saturday, May 10, 2014

In the heart of Beaverton is a great wetland with resident beavers and blackbirds in addition to a variety of other roving mammals and migratory birds. Join us as we learn how this habitat in the middle of the city can support such diversity.

Directions: From SW Walker Rd., go north on SW Meadow Dr. until it meets NW Pioneer Rd. The park is on the northwest corner of the intersection.
