View looking east towards the Land Bridge

Volunteer this Earth Day, April 22, from 9 a.m. to noon to tend to landscaping needs on the Confluence Land Bridge with hosts Confluence and the City of Vancouver.

Designed by internationally recognized architect Johnpaul Jones of Seattle, the site was dedicated in 2008. The Land Bridge is an earth-covered pedestrian bridge, arcing over Hwy 14, reconnecting historic Fort Vancouver with the Columbia River. European and Native American cultures once converged at this Columbia River site, where the Hudson's Bay Company stood as the first European trading post in the Pacific Northwest.

Learn about the site's indigenous plants as you walk along the Land Bridge and enjoy Native American artist, Lillian Pitt’s, works along the bridge that highlight the deep, significant contributions indigenous people make to this place.

Meet at Old Apple Tree Park, 112 Columbia Way. Tools, gloves, and training will be provided. Stay for the BBQ lunch at noon. RSVP to Courtney Yilk, Confluence Program Manager, 360-693-0123, Courtney@confluenceproject.org
