What s Going On Near Your Tacoma WA Apartment

Looking for things to do this holiday season? Here at Canyon Park apartments in Puyallup, WA, you are never far from the action. There are countless options for entertainment not far from your front door. Whether you want to hunt, give back to the environment or just refresh your understanding of literature there is bound to be something fun for you to do right around the corner. Are you looking to do something you have never done before? If you head down to Skookum Archers Club and Range, just a few miles east on 39th Ave SE, you can stop by and join one of their drop in archery classes held every Thursday night at 6:00. Bundle up, because it gets chilly this time of year, but be sure not to wear clothing that is too bulky as it can impede your shooting. Braving the cold is well worth it though; $5 gets you access to an archery safety class as well as a bow and arrows to shoot. Openings are filled on a first come, first served basis so get out there early to get your name on the list. Perhaps you are somewhat of an outdoorsy individual and would prefer to do something a little more environmentally conscious with your time. The Tacoma Nature Center has regular opportunities for volunteers to get together and help their community. Most recently, on December 20, volunteers got together to help with the Nature Centers wetland habitat restoration project. You will have to fill out some paperwork in order to volunteer but once you are approved you are good to go and can help out at any of the Tacoma Nature Center restoration projects. Wetlands are among the most crucial habitats in our community due to the wide variety of life they support. Habitat restoration in these, and other natural areas, is an excellent way to make a positive difference. Do you love to read? Or maybe you just have a fondness for literature? Next year, author James Kennedy is bringing the 90 second Newberry Film Festival to Tacoma! The 90 Second Newberry is a film festival in which contestants recreate the story of a Newbery award winning book in a 90 second video. These shorts, produced almost entirely by children and teenagers, offer a creative and often hilarious interpretation of many of the books we have come to know and love. If you or your children would like to participate in this event, head up to the Main Library on December 20th at 4PM for an informative meeting regarding submission rules and guidelines; then you can get to work on your submission! As you can see, there is no shortage of entertainment close at hand when you live at Canyon Park. These Tacoma, WA, apartments for rent are centrally located, giving you the perfect balance of city and suburban life. Now what are you waiting for? Get out there and explore!
