Tales From the Trail with Forest Park Conservancy
March 17, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Forest Park is in our backyard! Welcome the Forest Park Conservancy leaders that keep this park beautiful. Nature is waiting
Come get a deeper look at the beauty and biodiversity of Forest Park and learn how the largest forested city park in the United States benefits our local community. This event will feature a series of videos created by local nonprofit Vive NW, a photo slideshow, raffle, and a Q&A and discussion with the Forest Park Conservancy’s own Executive Director Renée Myers.
The Forest Park Conservancy is tied to the designation of Forest Park as a city park more than 70 years ago. Learn some history of the park, about the many health and wellness benefits this 5,200-acre urban oasis provides to the Portland Metro region, and about some of the current threats facing Forest Park. Learn how individuals and organizations are finding ways to protect this critical ecosystem, and ensure everyone can continue to experience the many benefits it provides.
Complimentary drinks and snacks courteously provided by Fjallraven. Also, come for a chance to win great prizes with all proceeds going to the Forest Park Conservancy.
