… and Looking Ahead to September

THPRD Koll Center Wetlands—Fanno Farmhouse
Fanno Creek Trail

September 3, 2016, 9:00 a.m. 

Meet on Stratus Street near the Creekside intersection at 9:00 a.m.

Walk south along Creekside Place and down the driveway between the big business buildings. You will be walking on private property to the back of the parking lots to see the public THPRD wetlands and wildlife, so it’s good to be there on a weekend or holiday.

Fanno Creek FarmhouseGo north behind the Rivermark Credit Union and around to the 100 year old Fanno Farmhouse and then left (west) to the Fanno Creek Trail.

We will go to the third bridge over Fanno Creek where there is a huge sign explaining what life along Fanno Creek used to be like. The total hike is 1 mile.

The trail is ADA accessible except for a slightly steeper grade for about 20 feet up to the first bridge over Fanno Creek,
