Bluff conservation could use help from UP

UP is restoring riverfront property. A local activist wants help fixing the nearby bluff, too.
To the Catholic Sentinel:
Though it’s commendable to restore the waterfront, it would be nice if the University of Portland’s care for creation could extend a few feet to the east to cover the Willamette Bluff, an important North Portland ecosystem that the university hopes to sacrifice to parking in order to preserve the upper campus’ spacious appearance.
Instead, the university should consider joining with neighboring community groups, Friends of Overlook Bluff and Friends of Baltimore Woods, in restoring Bluff connectivity and native oak habitat.
