Tree Policy/Shade Equity Walk Along and Near NE 102nd Avenue
September 24, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Portland has declared another climate emergency, making trees more important than ever to creating a healthy, climate-resilient city. Join Trees for Life Oregon for a walk on and around NE 102nd Avenue to learn about the potential for increasing tree canopy there despite a highly challenging urban environment. We will talk briefly about the environmental history of 102nd and other major north-south corridors in East Portland and share our recommendations for how to increase shade trees along high-traffic streets such as 102nd and in adjacent areas. We’ll share what actions residents can take to get the city to incorporate big shade trees into its plan for this major East Portland north-south corridor.
