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.

July 2015 - About 90 representatives of Intertwine Allliance partner organizations, along with the entire Intertwine Alliance staff and an assortment of non-partner friends, participated in a daylong antiracism training on Thursday, July 16. Led by Crossroads Antiracism Organizing & Training, the workshop was a deep and thought-provoking look at the definition of culture, the dominant white culture in the U.S., the history and development of racism, and the cause and effects of institutionalized racism.
