Land Bridge Earth Day Work Party
Volunteer this Earth Day weekend to tend to landscaping needs on the Confluence Land Bridge with hosts Confluence Project, The Mission Continues, and the City of Vancouver. We will be planting and pruning native vegetation, applying mulch, and picking up litter at the Land Bridge as well as along the Waterfront Trail and in Old Apple Tree Park. This event is open to people of all ages, abilities, and veteran or non-veteran statuses.
Meet at Old Apple Tree Park, 112 Columbia Way. Tools, gloves, and training will be provided. Stay for the barbecue lunch at noon!
Designed by internationally recognized architect Johnpaul Jones of Seattle, the site was dedicated in 2008. The Land Bridge is an earth-covered pedestrian bridge, arcing over Hwy 14, reconnecting historic Fort Vancouver with the Columbia River. European and Native American cultures once converged at this Columbia River site, where the Hudson's Bay Company stood as the first European trading post in the Pacific Northwest.
Learn about the site's indigenous plants as you walk along the Land Bridge and enjoy Native American artist, Lillian Pitt’s, works along the bridge that highlight the deep, significant contributions indigenous people make to this place.
