A Story To Share
Look here for a Story soon... until then, you can always discover more Stories.
This 1,000 acres natural area is loved and visited by people throughout the larger Portland metropolitan area. Here people can picnic, hike, fish, wade, skip stones, camp and view birds, deer, and even bear tracks in its many accessible areas. It’s so well loved. Which means it has to constantly recover from us and our many uses, and from warming summers and waters, less seasonal rain, more pollution and generally the impacts of climate changes with global warming. Do we show our gratitude? How might that look, or sound, or feel to this special place? Like all communities, this forest community of place and kin is also challenged by the times. We gather there on Saturday to be present to all it has given, and to share our stories of this and so many other places we have known that have made our lives richer, healthier and more beautiful. We come and we remember we owe such places our very lives.
