We'll discuss local history and nature in East Multnomah County as we tour a variety of local parks and historic sites. We'll make our way to Powell Butte Nature Park, site of an extinct volcano, where we'll learn much about water's reservoir supplies, before discovering the variety of natural habitats found here. Later, we'll discover dozens of teaching ideas as we observe wildlife and native plants in two of Gresham's hidden parks. We will conclude with a visit to Historic McMenamin's Edgefield, where we will explore the art, history and natural areas of this East County landmark. Teaching ideas will be discussed that can be implemented across the curriculum, in K-12 classrooms.
