Lewis & Clark Greenway Charrette

Clark County, The Intertwine Alliance, and the Cities of Vancouver, Ridgefield, Camas, and Washougal have partnered together to develop a 46 mile regional trail that is envisioned to connect Ridgefield to Washougal along the northern bank of the Columbia River.  Clark County was awarded a National Park Service (NPS) Rivers, Trails and Conservation technical assistance grant to help convene and coordinate partners and collectively plan the proposed trail.  Through a national cooperative agreement with NPS, ORASLA is helping to host a design charrette on Saturday November 18th.  The design workshop will be an intensive all-day event that will pair landscape architects with stakeholders and community members to collaboratively plan the trail’s proposed location and provide guidance for sites best suited for trailheads, connections to other trails, and pocket parks along the greenway.

 

The charrette will take place in Vancouver, WA on Saturday November 18th.  A call for interested ASLA landscape architects from both the Oregon and Washington chapters will be coming in the August newsletter.
