*12-13 Community Arts Event - An Unusual Community Forestry Day
October will surprise us all this year. The call to artists and the community is out and the forest is becoming an art gallery. There will be sculpture, fine art, wood crafts, interactive fun like papermaking, shake splitting and more. Food and beverages from our “neighborhood” will be featured.

More information pending for this first of a kind at Hopkins. It will be interesting.

We will need lots of volunteers to help with parking, traffic direction, and various guest support services. If you would enjoy a 2-4 hour shift, please call to see how you might be able to help. More detailed volunteer job descriptions will be posted soon.

Please remember to call 503-632-2150 by the Thursday prior to each CFD if you plan to volunteer, join us for community lunch, or the tour. Thank You
