Lunchtime Presentation on Portland's Forest Park


What?  A Brown Bag Presentation by Marcy Houle on Portland's Forest Park

When? Thursday, April 14th from Noon to 1:00 pm

Where? Portland Building Auditorium, 1221 Southwest 4th Avenue Portland, OR 97204

At over 5,100 acres, Portland's Forest Park is one of the largest city parks in the world and the only urban wilderness park in the United States.  Its native ecosystem is home to a remarkable diversity of wildlife, with numbers rivaling the statistics of some national parks.  Within minutes of downtown Portland, Forest Park offers over 80 miles of trails to explore and connect with the beautiful landscape of the Northwest.

Marcy Houle, author of the recently published guide, One City's Wilderness:  Portland's Forest Park, will speak about the unique natural and cultural qualities of the park and some of the best ways to access it.  She will also explain the history of Forest Park and the people who fought to preserve it.

Marcy will answer questions and sign copies of her book after the talk. Marcy's presentation is sponsored by City Nature/Portland Parks & Recreation.
