2015 Summer Picnic Photos
No photos yet of all the great food that materialized, or of the throngs of merry picnickers. Lisa says: I was amazed at how the food table came together with everyone's culinary contributions.
Thanks to Tryon Creek Grill for providing food for the Grill! A Big Thanks to Lewis & Clark College for providing drinks, the picnic grounds, and use of the outdoor swimming pool!
Neighborhood Emergency Team Table
Here is a shot of the NET table. Tons of information was available, including, for example, the HELP and OK (red and green) signs that can let emergency responders quickly assess your house. See our NET page for info on how you can prepare your home to be a safer haven in an regional emergency.
Quote from Dylan: It was an absolute pleasure to help staff the NET table and to have the opportunity to meet so many wonderful folks from our community!
The food was delicious too! :)
Here's the NET sector map.
(We need to get a version of this on the website.)
Back Yard Habitat and Naturescaping Table
Thanks to Denny Barnes for organizing and presenting info on
naturescaping and certification of Backyard Habitat. See Friends of Riverview page about Nature in Our Backyard: [LINK].
Denny also gave away two native plants, and suet for bird feeder!
River View Natural Area
Thanks to Lisa McG for compiling info-goodies for the newly forming River View Natural Area, including plant specimens and maps. Lisa answered plenty of questions. The management plan map (on the easel) was a big hit. (Lisa stepped out of the photo with her plate of food! :^)
