Meeting spots for Summer 2017

Mt Tabor Park

Meeting Spot for Nature Day Camp: Covered Picnic Shelter (across from the parking lot & playground)
Meeting Spot for Rockin Robins: In the amphitheater (caldera) adjacent to the parking lot
From the intersection of SE 69th and Yamhill St, travel up the hill to the right past the stop sign, and the shelter will be on your left!
NOTE!!! Mt Tabor Park is closed to vehicles on Wednesdays! On that day, we strongly suggest using the SE 69th & Yamhill entrance to the park, as the others require a lot of walking! We will have staff meeting campers & families at the gate!

Hoyt Arboretum

Meeting Spot: Covered Pavilion (across from the Visitor's Center at 4000 SW Fairview Blvd)
From HWY 26, take the Zoo Exit, and travel up the hill (past the World Forestry Center). Go straight at the stop sign and continue up to the top of the hill where the road comes to a "T". Turn right onto SW Fairview Blvd and park in one of the lots.

ALERT FOR HOYT ARBORETUM PARENTS! Parking in Washington Park is Pay-To-Park!!  Don’t get a ticket! If you are dropping off at Hoyt, you’ll need the temporary parking permit! Print a copy and put it on your dashboard for the week!
