Mother’s Day Hike
Sun May 14, 9am-5pm
Join the nonprofit Bark this Mother’s Day to explore the unique habitats of the Clackamas River, including beautiful spring flowers, breeding amphibians, and a recovering forest burn on this flat, relaxed, and family friendly hike. Carpools leave from the Hollywood Trader Joe’s, 4121 NE Halsey, (across the street from the Hollywood Transit Center, near the I-84 exit 2) in Portland at 9am sharp.
Rose City Rollers Bout
Sun May 14, 1-3pm
The Rose City Rollers league is made up of over 400 smart, tough, accomplished women who skate fast, hit hard and defy stereotypes about female athletes and women’s sports, just like Mom. So what’s a better way to spend Mother’s Day than watching the Rose City vs. Seattle’s Southside Revolution at this all-ages show?
