Restorative Design: The Confluence Bird Blind by Maya Lin
Maya Lin and Confluence are bringing landscape installations and ecological restoration to six locations along the Columbia River System. Combining natural history, culture, and design, the Confluence Bird Blind asks us to consider evolving land ethics and one’s role in a sustainable future. Join Confluence for this informative hike through the significantly restored Sandy River Delta, and discuss using design as a means to greater ecological awareness.
The hike is a flat, 2.4 miles roundtrip. The group will meet at the kiosk near the restrooms.
Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.

We try new things. We grow. And so, to best reflect the culture here, Design Week Portland stitches together the events and happenings that will connect, educate, and inspire.
