Basic Earthquake Emergency Communication Node (BEECN)

A Basic Earthquake Emergency Communication Node (pronounced beacon) is a place to go in Portland after a major earthquake to ask for emergency assistance if phone service is down, or report severe damage or injury. More information can be found at the Basic Earthquake Emergency Communication Node page.

Alberta Park Nature Patch

A photo collage of the Alberta Park Nature Patch planting crew from May 2018.

We transformed an underutilized acre of grass under a stand of Douglas fir in the center of the park (between the playground and the dog off leash area) into a lush forest understory setting. The Alberta Park Nature Patch features forest plantings, nurse logs, root wads, boulders, and an accessible gravel path. These enhancements not only add beauty and natural elements to explore but improve habitat for birds and other native pollinators.

Do you dig this beautiful place? Join Friends of the Alberta Nature Patch in monthly stewardship activities! Email Eric Rosewall to get notices about future work party events.

A very special thanks to our community-engagement partner on this project, the Columbia Slough Watershed Council.

Three cheers to Portland's Boy Scout Troop 22 for installing a stream bed rain garden to capture stormwater from the basketball court!

We had a blast rocking and mulching out with the folks from Murray Smith Engineers.
