Significant Success for the Park in 2017

NVCA is excited to report to you that we have made some significant progress on the Park in 2016 and 2017.  We …….

  • Received a TLT grant of to develop the gravel parking lot at the entrance of the park property.
  • Contracted with HHPR for the landscape engineering and Earthworks (a local contractor) for construction of the parking lot
  • Were awarded a grant from Trust Management Services LLC (TMS) for the fifth annual and very successful Science Camp in 2017
  • Were given a grant from Tillamook Public Utility District (TPUD) to install a radio controller gate providing security and emergency vehicle access to the park 24/7.
  • Opened and operated a functional parking lot to help relieve the parking hassle for visitors and residents at Cape Kiwanda
  • Earned approximately $3,000 from parking proceeds with the lot operation.

We are on our way – and in 2018 will aggressively pursue grants to fund a children’s playground, picnic benches, trash and restroom facilities for the park.  We plan on an Open House for the park where visitors and residents alike can tour the park property, study the drawings and see that the community park is on its way.  Watch for future announcements.

Please donate your time or dollars to keep the momentum going.

We need your continuing support so, please visit the website at www.nestuccca.org  to volunteer and/or donate to this worthy cause.    Mail donations to PO Box 253, Pacific City, Oregon 971235.

Solar, Wind & Energy – 2017 Science Camp Success

School is back in session and the students that participated in the 2017 Nestucca Science Summer Camp (NSSC) can share their great  experience.   The three week science camp was held in July. It focused on solar, wind and water energy and taught students how those forms of energy can be converted to mechanical and electrical power.    About 55 students participated in this free program.   Learn about their experience at the  2017 Science Camp on the NVCA website, www.nestucca.org.

The Science Camp is a collaboration between the Nestucca Valley School District and the non-profit Nestucca Valley Community Alliance (NVCA).

2017 Science Camp – Energy

Be it solar, wind, water, electricity, heat or just the cup of coffee that gives you that jolt in the morning.   ENERGY is the subject of this year’s Science Camp.

NVCA in conjunction with the Nestucca Valley Elementary school is preparing for our Fifth Annual Science Camp.   We have received a $9.800 grant from Trust Management Services in Waldport, Oregon to help fund this project.

The science camp will be held in July with the tentative dates being July 10th through July 27th.   Each Thursday of the Science Camp,  July 13 and July 20  NVCA volunteers work with the students and instructors on hands on projects.  Volunteers will also assist on a field trip that will be held on the last  Thursday of the science camp, July 27.

In years past, there have been as many as 70 students attending the science camp and can use help from the community.   We encourage those that are interested to come and help out.   If you are interested, contact us at nvcainfo@gmail.com.

Better still, come to our next meeting on Saturday,  June 10th at 10 AM at the Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive.
