The Land Bridge is an earth-covered pedestrian bridge, arcing over Hwy 14, reconnecting historic Fort Vancouver with the Columbia River. 

Saturday, April 22nd, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Meet at Old Apple Tree Park, 112 Columbia Way. Tools, gloves, and training will be provided. Stay for the BBQ lunch at noon.
