We're celebrating U in nature at Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. That means yoU and it means Urban National Wildlife Refuges.
We wouldn't be an Urban National Wildlife Refuge if it wasn't for our visitors, volunteers, and partners. That's why this event is celebrating YOU, our nature neighbors!
We're rolling out some fan-favorite nature activities fit for the whole family on Saturday, September 29th from 10am to 1pm, including: Archery, hunting dog demonstrations, a fishing rod casting challenge, guided walks, kid-friendly nature education, crafts, and more.
Event partners include: The Friends of Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge; I'm Hooked, Inc.; Sylvan Archers; Hike It Baby; and Oregon WaterFowl Festival.
DID YOU KNOW...The Intertwine contains three Urban National Wildlife Refuges that you can visit: Ridgefield NWR in Ridgefield, WA; Steigerwald Lake NWR in Washougal, WA; and Tualatin River NWR in Sherwood, OR. They're all about 30 minutes from the Portland city center, so check 'em all out. And don't miss Ridgefield's Birdfest and Bluegrass event October 6th and 7th.
