Learn about the Portland/Vancouver I-5 Transportation and Trade Partnership which brought Washington and Oregon citizens and leaders together to address traffic congestion. Watch for great blue herons and coyotes on a short trail link of the new Burnt Bridge Creek Regional Wetland Bank & Greenway Trails Project.
