APRIL GNOME HUNT (See Map in Attachments)


Watch for Bald Eagles by the Willamette River path! The 3 gnomes may peek out from trees or native species, like Red-0sier Dogwood and Salal Berry. Maybe they'll be by tall basalt columns etched with poetry!

Location: 199 Foothills Rd.


Follow winding trails by the Tualatin River. Cross the footbridge and pass by native species, Mock Orange and Pacific Ninebark, as you hunt for gnomes. Keep an eye out for Osprey and Red-tail Hawks! 

Location: 19698 River Run Dr.


This natural area has sweeping views of the Stafford landscape. Follow the meadow trail past native Oregon White Oaks and cross a footbridge. Shh! Black-tail Deer and Brush Rabbits like this meadow!

Location: 18600 Shirley Dr.
