The Jungle book is a beautiful interpretation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic story, brought to life. It follows the journey of a young boy raised in the wild, and features vibrant, traditional Indian dance, with Bollywood flair.
Northwest Children’s Theater and School seeks to enrich and educate youth in our community, through wonderful theater arts performances and programs. It is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council’s General Operating Support grant.
The Jungle Book was created in partnership with Anita Menon’s Anjali School of Dance. It runs now through March 1st at the Northwest Children’s Theater and School.

This rainy season is the perfect time to utilize rain barrels in your gardens.
Rain barrels are simple rainwater collectors that store runoff from a roof downspout. The purpose is to temporarily hold water for irrigation and other exterior uses. It’s a great way to manage stormwater overflow on your property - and save money on your utility bill.
The City of Portland offers financial incentives for using rain barrels in approved locations, where overflow water soaks into the ground.
Show our small businesses some love this weekend by shopping local this Valentine’s Day weekend!
Hidden Hearts is a new Valentine’s Day shopping event that rewards Portlanders for buying their Valentine’s gifts at local, independent retailers. The brainchild of Supportland co-founder Katrina Scotto di Carlo, Hidden Hearts showcases Portland’s small business community and gives shoppers the opportunity to cash in while supporting their neighborhood stores.
Shoppers can collect a Hidden Heart at each participating Supportland business through February 14. On February 15, each heart will turn into 20 Supportland Merits to use during a 24-hour shopping spree on supportland.com
As a champion for small businesses, Nick will help kick off Hidden Hearts at SW Portland’s Crafty Wonderland on Friday morning at 8 am.
Local small businesses are part of what makes Portland great. They employ half of our workforce and strengthens our neighborhoods. For every dollar spent at a small business, nearly 70 cents stay in our local economy.
Check out Supportland’s website for more information.

The Water Bureau also has simple tips to avoid lead exposure from household plumbing.
