As you may already know, The Intertwine Alliance is the new and permanent name for what was the Connecting Green Alliance. The Alliance’s mission is to create the world’s greatest system of parks, trails, and natural areas in the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan region.
The Alliance (www.theintertwine.org) is a coalition of nonprofits (Including npGREENWAY,) government agencies, and private businesses working collaboratively in five Alliance initiatives: 1). Acquiring new park land and natural areas and building the regional bi-state trail network; 2). Conservation through creation of a regional biodiversity conservation plan and restoring the region’s natural areas; 3). Conservation education; 4). Defining the System of parks, trails, and natural areas with local park providers, Metro, and state and federal land owners; and 5). Active Transportation Planning
