The Editorial Board of the Oregonian devoted a column to Mike Houck today.
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.
