Paddle to preserve Ross Island!

By David Nguyen

Portland Parks & Recreation presents amazing, family-friendly nature opportunities at Ross Island Natural Area, beginning this Saturday!

Parks' City Nature division, in partnership with the Friends of Ross Island, is offering six canoe trips to Ross Island Natural Area.  Once on the island, you’ll work to enhance wildlife habitat and learn more about the animals and plants that call the island home.

Children are welcome when accompanied and supervised by an adult. Use your own canoe or kayak or reserve a spot in one of our canoes for only $10 per person.

Register today, or you can RSVP by contacting Marissa (503) 823-7016, or
