We sadly share the news that Portland’s trail and green spaces champion Barbara Walker recently passed away. Some npGreenway members were lucky enough to know Barbara Walker through the 40 Mile Loop Land Trust. Barbara’s quiet determination preserved the Marquam Nature Park; she worked to make the Springwater Corridor Trail a reality and she founded the 40 Mile Loop that links them. The North Portland Greenway Trail is considered a 10 mile gap in that 40 Mile Loop that now measures 140 miles!
Inspired by Barbara Walker and other trail champions, npGreenway will continue to pursue completing the North Portland Greenway Trail. Join us!
