Engage With The Alliance 

It takes hearts, hands and minds to build The Intertwine’s 3,000 square miles of parks, trails and natural areas. This is the work of The Intertwine Alliance—a unique coalition of 130+ public, private and nonprofit organizations in the Portland/Vancouver region.

Through the organizing framework of Collective Impact, we identify priority work areas, set goals and guide progress.

Focus areas we're working in include Active Transportation, Conservation Education, Conservation, Economic Development, Equity, Health & Nature, Public Engagement/Our Common Ground Campaign, Youth Engagement, Urban Forestry and the Regional System of Parks, Trails and Natural Areas. 

Check back here for frequent updates, resources and calendar items, as we shape a positive new future for The Intertwine, powered by you.
