Friends of the Columbia Gorge and Terrain.org co-host special March forum on art, community action and conservation.
Literature, photography and art have long served as sources of inspiration that have helped fuel community-led conservation efforts to protected treasured landscapes, from the Columbia Gorge to the Grand Canyon. On March 27, Friends of the Columbia Gorge and Terrain.org: A Journal of the Built + Natural Environments will co-host a special evening exploring the intersection of artistic inspiration and community-led conservation initiatives with award-winning poet Jane Hirshfield and Oregon Poet Laureate Kim Stafford.
Held at Portland's famed The Old Church concert hall, readings by Hirshfield and Stafford will be followed by a moderated panel and Q&A session exploring the intersection of artistic inspiration and community conservation efforts to protect treasured places. Tickets for the event are $15 for adults, $10 for students. All proceeds from the event will go to further Friends and Terrain.org public education and conservation efforts.
