Help build the Cedar Mill Park Trail!

9 am – 1 pm, Saturday July 18

Join us as we install a new trail from 107th through the woods to Cedar Mill Park! Please bring work gloves, a shovel and re-usable water bottle to drink from throughout the project. Refreshments and a water cooler will be provided!

Cedar Mill Park is next to Cedar Mill Elementary School, located on the corner of NW 102nd & Cornell Road. Volunteers will meet at the picnic tables on the north side of the lower parking lot.

You can pre-register for the event at the THPRD website, thprd.org/about/volunteer/environmental.cfm, or just show up!

Bonny Slope Blueberries opens 2009 season

Joan Gunness, owner of Bonny Slope Blueberries, says, “come on up!” to pick the most delicious huge and juicy blueberries in the area. The farm, located at 3555 NW South Road, is open 9 am – 6 pm daily or by appointment. She advises you to call first to make sure they’re open, since they have to close occasionally for ripening—503-645-1252.

Bring your own containers. For easiest picking, make a blueberry bucket from a large plastic container with a cord attached to put around your neck. That way you can use both hands.

Prices are $2/lb for you-pick berries. If you want to leave the picking to them, call first to order berries at $3/lb. But it can be a fun family outing to meander through the bountiful field getting your own berries. The bushes are loaded, and plenty of the berries are low on the bushes for kids. But please don’t bring your dogs.

New businesses coming to Cornell

Pars International Market will be moving into the retail space in the new building at 12923 NE Cornell next month. The shop will sell a variety of Middle Eastern groceries and other items.

Salar’s Mediterranean Grill is nearly finished at Cornell & Dale, it should be opening in early August also.

We’ll have more complete information on both businesses in the August issue of the News.

Cedar Milers Volkswalk

Please join us for a walk in the forest on July 11. This walk will begin at the Jones Creek Day Use area on Hwy 6 headed toward Tillamook, between milepost 22 & 23. You have a choice of 10K rated 2+ or 5K rated 1+.

The walk will be on park trails and forest roads and will border the Wilson River at times. Will be held regardless of weather, but please use good judgment in severe weather; the trails will be more difficult. There are narrow log bridges which will be inappropriate for strollers and wheelchairs and may frighten pets. For more info, see the website at www.cedarmilers.org or call 503-614-8771
