Baltimore Woods and Old Growth Oak Trees Walk

Several curious people showed on a cold, shivering Saturday morning in February to go on a walk lead by Friends of Baltimore Woods with npGreenway members. Barbara Quinn and Jim Barnas of FBW led walkers on the future North Portland Willamette Greenway Trail along the edge of Baltimore Woods and pointed out precious old growth oak trees. The trees are some of the last remaining stands of oaks along the Willamette River. Oaks with spreading branches provide the best habitat. Other highlights of the walk were a peek at the oldest house in St John’s, and talk about a pioneer cemetary that was either moved or built over.
