Saturday morning, the Audubon Society of Portland hosted a sneak peak tour of Collins Sanctuary, a recent Metro purchase with voter-approved dollars.
As the elected officials in the video will tell you (Metro President David Bragdon; Metro Councilor Rex Burkholder; Portland City Commissioner Nick Fish), Metro is partnering with Friends of Trees’ Gift Trees program to do natural area restoration on the over 80-acre parcel of land.
Here is a little of the back story of Collins Sanctuary.
And here is a snippet on what the previous Gift Trees planting was like in December.
Check back in for more personal Gift Trees stories as we lead up to our next March 28 planting.
