For decades Leach Botanical Garden has been an enchanting refuge in East Portland – and now they are about to take bold steps toward becoming a garden for everyone, both in East Portland and around the region. The centerpiece will be a tree walk – 30 feet off the ground – giving visitors of all ages and abilities the chance to experience a truly unique urban garden and forest.
Join Portland historian Dave Hedberg and the Lents & Brentwood-Darlington Tree Team to learn about the trees in your community and how history has shaped our urban forest. Using trees as historical anchors, we’ll explore the history of Lents and how trees are inextricably intertwined with the neighborhood. Understanding and valuing trees historically leaves us better equipped to make future decisions and avoid unexpected consequences inherited from our past.
