The Willamette Valley as a Park

Thu, 31 Jul, 2014 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The Big Country: The Willamette Valley as a Park

Retiring Baby Boomers desiring outdoor recreation, foodies and wine connoisseurs coming for the comestibles, climate refugees fleeing soaring Southwest temperatures—the population of the Willamette Valley is near certain to soar. Can we welcome the hordes without losing what we treasure about the valley? Four visionary thinkers ponder the possibilities: award-winning regional planner John Fregonese; urban naturalist Mike Houck; Mark Davison, Metro’s parks and natural areas manager; and Charles Goodrich, director of the Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature, and the Written Word at Oregon State University.

This event is part of "Force of Nature: Portland’s Parks, Past, Present, and Future," a discussion series in celebration of The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden, on view June 14 - September 21, 2014, at the Portland Art Museum. The series is hosted by Randy Gragg, Director of the John Yeon Center at the University of Oregon and Editor at Large for Portland Monthly.

Members free; non-members $20, seniors and students $17. Advance ticket purchase recommended.
