Air Quality in the Tualatin Valley
Smoke from the Eagle Creek Fire has affected the air quality of the Tualatin Valley. Thankfully, the smoke is slowly clearing. Children, older adults, and people with heart and lung disease should take extra precautions when traveling outdoors this week. You can find more information from the Oregon Smoke Information blog and the Oregon Health Authority’s guide to wildfire smoke and your health.
Discover active indoor adventures in the Tualatin Valley, which do not skimp on fun or unique experiences. You can practice your golf swing, experience the sensation of skydiving or glide across an ice rink all from the comfort of the indoors. Additionally, cultural experiences like live theater, museums and D.I.Y. studios are great indoor activities to explore this week and always.
If you are looking for alternate lodging due to the wildfire, then there are room available at Tualatin Valley accommodations.
