img_0928

Saturday, Aug. 8 • 10 am-2 pm
Conestoga Recreation Center ~ 9985 SW 125th ~ Beaverton, OR 97008

There is something exciting about big trucks, especially when the kiddos can climb aboard, honk the horn and kick the tires in a parking lot full of big rigs. Big Truck Day is an opportunity for our neighbors, both big and small, to walk around and touch, feel and climb into the big rigs and trucks they witness in their everyday life. The center’s front and back parking lots become packed with everything from bulldozers, fire engines, freight trucks, cranes, buses, tow trucks, to SWAT van and more. Suggested donation $1 per child.

Located minutes south of downtown Hillsboro, Jackson Bottom Wetlands provides a quiet sanctuary for both people and wildlife. Over 150 species of birds are spotted annually at Jackson Bottom including nesting Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, and thousands of Tundra Swans and Northern Pintails, making Jackson Bottom a haven for bird watchers.  The preserve is home to beavers, deer, otters and thousands of other species.
