SNAC Event 1The goal of he Stewardship of Natural Amenities Committee (SNAC) is to enable SMILE to effectively address issues and opportunities involving natural amenities within and adjacent to our neighborhood.

Sellwood-Moreland has an abundance of natural resources and opportunities to enjoy nature.  Over the years several formal and informal ad-hoc SMILE committees have formed to preserve and enhance these amenities, including  Friends of Oaks Bottom, the Springwater Corridor Committee, the Golf Junction Park Committee, the Crystal Springs Collaborative, and the Tree Inventory Committee.  Interest has waxed and waned over time and some of the groups have become dormant.  SNAC strives to attract a dedicated group of neighborhood residents who pay attention to the topics that inspired these committees in the first place, and to address new issues and opportunities as they arise.


SNAC meets on the first Wednesday of each month from 6:00 – 7:15 p.m. at the SMILE Station (SE 13th and Tenino).  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
