About Our Organization
The Forest Park Conservancy is a community supported organization that protects and restores Forest Park. Forest Park is one of the best things about Portland and we want to make sure it stays that way for generations to come.
The Forest Park Conservancy works in partnership with Portland Parks & Recreation which manages this 5,200-acre urban forest just 10 minutes from downtown Portland.
The Forest Park Conservancy recruits and trains more than 1,000 volunteers each year to maintain trails, improve wildlife habitat, and educate the public about this wonderful and environmentally critical urban forest.
In addition, FPC is leading a 20-year strategy to restore and protect Forest Park and 10,000 acres of land surrounding the park which will lead to a healthier environment and habitat. The Great Forest Park Conservation Initiative involved individual, business and government leaders.
