A colorful hiking spot, with the very good possibility of spotting some wildlife. Jackson Bottom also has a pretty good visitor center.
The Education Center is open daily from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Trails are open from dawn to dusk.
Plenty of farms… check out the Tri County Farms website to find somewhere open nearby.
Similar to and yet different from the excellent Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. Virginia Lake on Sauvie Island is also wet and full of life. Graham Oaks Nature Park would really quite like to be this place.
