POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Forest Park - June 9, 2010

Today, the Oregonian published “Forest Park: Our much-loved but at-risk treasure,” an Op Ed I co-authored with Metro President David Bragdon and Forest Park Conservancy Executive Director Michelle Bussard.

 

The essay builds on the report issued by the City Club of Portland, “Forest Park: A Call to Action.” The report envisions a future in which Forest Park is “part of a larger, healthy ecosystem extending all the way to the Coast Range.”

 

In our essay, we call for dedicated funding to protect and preserve all of our region’s natural resources, including Forest Park, acknowledge our public and private partners, and challenge Portlanders to work with us to protect this important legacy for future generations.
