Isolation Art 2020 Online Contest
An online art contest, Isolation Art of 2020 is inspired by the art & times of the WPA Era.
Maintaining the traditional art and craft that embodies the identity of the Mount Hood region is the mission of the Cascadia Center for Arts & Crafts. With art classes temporarily closed, the Center has created an online art contest. Reflect on what art brings to your life, and in the ways traditional arts have been passed down through the generations. One of the main criteria is that WPA mediums used in Timberline Lodge preferred, but not absolute, scale can be much smaller than those in the lodge when necessary. Art should pertain to Isolation and your struggles, as the country had in the WPA Era. For more information, visit the Cascadia Center for Arts & Crafts contest webpage.

Bonney Butte Hawkwatch
Bonney Butte HawkWatch is located in the middle of the Mt Hood National Forest. The team at HawkWatch International has been monitoring and counting hawk species at Bonney Butte since 1994 with the gola of defining long-term trends in populations of raptors in this part of the Pacific Coast Flyway through the Cascade Mountains. Annual counts typically range from 2,500-4,500 migrant raptors of up to 18 species. The most commonly seen species are the Sharp-shinned Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk, Cooper's Hawk, Turkey Vulture and Golden Eagle. The public is welcome to visit Bonney Butte during the season to take advantage of the environmental education programs and the great hawkwatching at the site.Event ends: Saturday, October 31, 2020
