Sarah Taylor: Land Acknowledgement (summary): The Portland Metro area rests on traditional Native sites. We thank the original caretakers of this land, acknowledge the systemic racism involved in the cleanup of the Willamette River. Tribes will heal only when we understand the harms done and we promise to continue to learn and to honor, respect and take care of this watershed, all that it offers to all living beings.
In-Person Walking Tour Meeting
Started at the fishing dock at Cathedral Park, next to
the Willamette River.
We proceeded past the Water Pollution Lab riparian area, viewed and discussed new residential construction, got an understanding on Cathedral Park soil-testing and the park’s future and ended at Green Anchor’s inspirational garden and beehives, river restoration and heard more about this manufacturing community-based work environment.
Sarah Taylor, Doug Larson, Michael Pouncil of PHCAG, Matt Stein, Tim Wessels and Melanie Berry of Green Anchors

Each month we feature a tour but are always happy to lead group tours for those who want them. We can tailor the tour to your interests. Past tours include the CEI Hub, Guild’s Lake, LInnton, The University of Portland Bluffs, Cathedral Park and Green Anchors. Our topics include Environmental Justice, the superfund, history, ecology and the Critical Energy Infrastructure Hub. This summer we will work with BEAM (Black Educational Achievement Movement) to lead tours for youth groups.
