Portland Parks & Recreation's new program brings nature to neighborhood parks. We're adding nature patches to developed park landscapes to provide natural experiences for people and habitat for wildlife. Nature patches are unique natural garden spaces that support native pollinators and offer fun opportunities for education and exploration.
Many thanks to everyone in the Lents Lents Neighborhood for helping plant the patch in February. Learn about the project here.
