Houck is a dedicated advocate who founded the Urban Greenspaces Institute and who works to preserve natural areas in our city. From restoring the Columbia Slough to saving Oaks Bottom, Houck is a force to be reckoned with.
I know him primarily through the annual Visionary Voyage rides he helps coordinate. These rides bring together regional leaders for an up-close look at the highs and lows of our bikeways and trails.
Houck plays in invaluable role in creating and maintaining the natural areas many Portlanders take for granted. Learn more and consider donating to his work at UrbanGreenspaces.org.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
