Event Information


Join us for a special evening with Adriano Martinez, a Los Angeles-based Earthjustice attorney

What’s next for Oregon after the state legislature passed HB2007, which regulates diesel trucks in the Portland Metro region, to continue to address the most dangerous air pollution in our state? Can we tackle our biggest environmental challenges head on, and address the intersections of Environmental Justice, Air Quality and Climate?

We invite you for a very special evening with Adriano Martinez, an attorney from the Los Angeles office of Earthjustice, and presentations on the most recent Portland Metro region air quality research from Amelia Schlusser, attorney at the Green Energy Institute and Dr. Linda George, leading air quality environmental research specialist, Portland State University.

About Adriano Martinez: With over 15 years of experience, Adriano has specialized in air quality and healthy communities issues. His extensive litigation experience includes environmental claims in state and federal court. Since 2013, he has been an adjunct lecturer in law at UCLA School of Law, where he has co-taught a course on environmental justice. Adriano has presented on transportation electrification and other topics in environmental law at several conferences, including the Los Angeles Regional Collaborative for Climate Action and Sustainability’s Forum on Electrifying Transportation in California.

Natural Area Stewardship News


No Ivy Day 2019 is right around the corner! 
Saturday, October 26th

Join 1 of 14 events throughout the Portland metro area to remove ivy from parks and natural areas! Removing introduced species like English ivy helps increase the diversity and abundance of native plants, which creates more habitat for local wildlife.

Celebration locations at:

Forest Park, Lower Macleay, 2960 NW Upshur Street, Portland, and
George Himes Park, SW Terwilliger Parkway and SW Nebraska Street, Portland

This is a fun opportunity to enjoy food together, share ivy removal stories, and connect with fellow volunteers.

Project sites include: Forest Park, Gateway Green, George Himes Park, Hoyt Arboretum, Indian Creek Natural Area, Johnson Lake, Marquam Nature Park, Marshall Park, Pier Park, Woods Memorial Park, Nadaka Nature Park, Portland Community College Sylvania Campus, Spring Park/Elk Rock Island, Tenny Creek Park
