We can carpool to the Refuge.

 

The Kiwa Trail is a 1.2-mile loop trail and the path is compacted gravel. The trail passes through an understory of Oregon ash trees and between open wetland areas.

Exciting News!

Villages Clark County recently received $10,000 from 100+Women Clark County.

The donation will help seniors stay living in their homes as long as they can and as safely and affordably as possible.  How will they do this?  By training and background checking neighborhood volunteers to do the kinds of things that an adult child would do: errands, chores, light housekeeping, cooking, rides to doctors appointments, light yard work, companionship and more.

Thank you very much for this generous donation! For more information on 100+Women Clark County go to www.100womenclarkcounty.com.

For more information on how you can help, contact Helen Elder, Chairperson, Villages Clark County, 360-989-0531, helenelder1@gmail.com.
