Calling photographers of all skill levels! Friends of Gateway Green will be kicking off the 2012 “GREEN-IT” events series February 18, 2012 9am-12pm, with the “CLICK-IT” event (a photographic site survey).
A photographic site survey is a visual record of a property that is periodically updated. GPS waypoints will be used to ensure that future photos are easily replicable. A compilation of photographs taken throughout the duration of the project will showcase the extensive transformations and accomplishments realized through the hard work and dedication of our community stewards!
The Gateway GREEN-IT events series strives to engage community members in enhancing the ecological and watershed health of existing and potential natural resources at the Gateway Green site, an undeveloped swath of land owned by ODOT at the confluence of I-205 and I-84.
If you take MAX, the red, blue and green lines run directly to the Gateway Transit Center. Several bus lines run there as well.
Pedestrian and bicycle access is available from the northern and southern edges via the I-205 multi-use path. In the City of Maywood Park, to the north, a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over I-205 takes you to the Gateway Green site. From the Gateway Transit Center at the south end, the multi-use path takes you over the I-84 freeway, under the Halsey Street underpass, and onto the Gateway Green site.
If you drive, you can park free at the Gateway Transit Center parking structure, the Green Line Main Street Park ‘n Ride to the south, or the Yellow Line Parkrose/Sumner Park ‘n Ride to the north. It is important that you do not park in business parking lots or on the surrounding residential streets.
Convene at Gateway Green, near the south end. (Walk north from Gateway MAX Station toward Rocky Butte); follow the Gateway Green signs.
