ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION Environmental Education offers outdoor programs that focus on stewardship and nature connection. All programs meet in PP&R parks and natural areas. For children and families, Environmental Education offers field trips, summer camps, and guided walks. For teens and young adults, Environmental Education offers stewardship, nature education, and jobs in natural areas.

Ladybug Nature Walks—Mondays and Thursdays

Age 6 & under with an adult | Children ages 15–24 months need to register but attend for free. Ladybug Nature Walks take place in Portland's parks and natural areas. They are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers who want to explore nature with a trained educator. Children attend with an adult who assists in guiding them as they explore. Ladybug Nature Walks are a way for children ages 6 and under (and an adult) to explore a local Portland park. Nature educators guide families to notice plants and animals. Walks are child-directed and open-ended. Nature educators walk with the children in small groups. Children learn through questions, observation, and play. Groups move slowly through the park, stopping often. In this way, children have time to notice the plants and animals around them. If we have extra time we might also read a story, sing a song, or use puppets for imaginative play. Walks last one hour. Content is geared for children ages 15 months–6 years. (Younger siblings under 15 months are welcome. Please give us their names and ages when prompted during registration.)

FAMILY

MULTNOMAH ARTS CENTER

FAMILY CLASSES Family arts classes are designed for parents, guardians, and children to interact and participate together. Our philosophy is to honor the child’s creative impulses— focusing on process, rather than product. • Performing Arts classes offer opportunities for children and their adults to participate together in an exploration of movement, song, and creative drama in a safe, joyful, and welcoming environment. • Visual Arts classes provide instruction in the use of art materials and techniques and encourage each child’s individual style of visual expression. We recommend both adult and child wear grubbies as these classes can be messy. All materials are included. Clean-up is part of all MAC Youth visual art classes.

COLUMBIA POOL CLOSURE Columbia Indoor Pool is closed until further notice due to safety hazards for building occupants. Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) understands this is disappointing news for the North Portland community. PP&R must prioritize public safety while determining the next steps for Columbia Pool. Since 2008, PP&R has worked with independent professional roofing contractors to inspect the building’s roof while also performing internal quarterly reviews. The inspections indicated, among other things, deterioration of sections of the roof, visible damage to the roof’s supporting wood structure, and life-safety hazards present in the domed roof structure over the pool. Therefore, the independent structural engineer recommends that Columbia Pool not be re-opened to the public in its current condition. PP&R will share more information with the public once the next steps for Columbia Pool are determined. If you have questions, please email: pkrsst@portlandoregon.gov

WATER SLIDE FUN Experience 114 feet (in length) of water sliding fun at East Portland Community Center, Mt. Scott Community Center, Southwest Community Center, and Wilson pools. Call pools for slide hours.
