Bringing nature to neighborhoods and enhancing ecological value.

Portland Parks & Recreation's new program is bringing nature to neighborhood parks. The program will add patches of nature to developed parks that offer natural experiences for people and enhance ecological value for wildlife. The program aims to create more diverse park landscapes that support native pollinators, reduce maintenance, provide education and exploration opportunities, and foster collaboration.

Alberta Park Nature Patch

The first Ecologically Sustainable Landscapes project is underway at Alberta Park.

The Alberta Park nature patch will include forest plantings, an accessible path, seating, and natural elements. These enhancements will not only add beauty and natural exploration opportunities to your park, but improve habitat for birds, butterflies, and other native pollinators.

Help create this space! Join the neighborhood to plant the nature patch on Saturday, February 24, 2018. Click here to learn more about the project and sign up to attend the planting.
