2019 Portland Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Habitat Restoration @ Indian Creek Natural Area | Volunteer Event
This Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, volunteer your time to improve habitat at Indian Creek Natural Area! We will focus on removing English Ivy in order to enhance habitat quality for this natural area. Ivy can smother and weigh down trees, so we will perform tree “lifesavers” to save the trees, which provide habitat for wildlife, shade the creek, and improve ecosystem health. Be ready to work hard with your community on this day of service!
Martin Luther King Junior dedicated his life to service and selflessness. To honor his legacy, we will participate in reflective conversation and activities in addition to our restoration work. Please join us!

Escapism Portland is proud to introduce our seventh escape room experience: Malice Manor, Portland’s only haunted escape room!
Secrets can be hidden, but never destroyed. This was the harsh lesson learned by the members of the Randle family, whose cursed bloodline came to a tragic and mysterious end nearly a hundred years ago. Since then, tales of ghostly voices, doors that open themselves, and visions of a little girl have haunted the home. The locals call it Malice Manor and avoid it at all costs, though certain brave souls have ventured inside and lived to regret it. Now it’s up to you to unravel the mysteries of the Randle family, and of the child whose soul remains trapped there. (more…)
