Happy May everyone. 

With April showers, we get May flowers, International Labors Day, Cinco De Mayo, and Mothers Day. We also get another opportunity to come together for the Willamette River, Portland Harbor, Cathedral Park and Willamette Cove. We do this in the spirit of reciprocity for the land and water, we do this in acknowledgement of mutual benefit and kinship we have with our ecology.
