Earth Day Work Party at the Land Bridge

April 21, 2018

Thanks for the strong interest in the work party, our numbers have reached capacity. Please contact Courtney for further opportunities. 

Volunteer Saturday, April 21, from 9 a.m. to noon to tend to landscaping needs (mulching, weeding, trash pick up) and lunch with burgers and hot dogs on the Land Bridge with hosts Confluence and the City of Vancouver. Designed by internationally recognized architect Johnpaul Jones of Jones & Jones, the site was dedicated in 2008. The Land Bridge is an earth-covered pedestrian bridge, arcing over Hwy 14, reconnecting historic Fort Vancouver with the Columbia River. European and Native American cultures once converged at this Columbia River site, where the Hudson's Bay Company stood as the first European trading post in the Pacific Northwest. Learn about the site's indigenous plants as you walk along the Land Bridge and enjoy Native American artist Lillian Pitt’s work along the bridge that highlights the deep, significant contributions indigenous people make to this place.

RSVP to Courtney Yilk, Confluence Program Manager, 360-693-0123, Courtney@confluenceproject.org.
