Natural areas levy produces jobs in restoration, stewardship

Following the region's passage of the parks and natural areas management levy in May, Metro is hiring for a variety of positions to accomplish the levy's goals, which include park improvements, habitat restoration, and more.

A personal message from Councilor Chase: St. Johns Landfill

SamI recently toured the site of the former St. Johns Landfill with members of Metro’s North Portland Enhancement Committee. With your support and the support of the St. John’s community, I believe we can complete the transformation of this once burdensome landfill into a celebrated resource for wildlife that will be accessible to everyone in the region –  especially the traditionally underserved communities in North Portland.
