The Intertwine Alliance mobilizes the Portland‐Vancouver region in support of healthy and resilient communities. Our shared environment brings us together and connects us, introduces new generations to nature, and galvanizes us to care for our planet. We envision a region connected by forests and streams, supporting thriving habitat for fish and wildlife. In this future, the benefits of clean air and clean water, access to nature, recreational opportunities, and a clean economy flow equitably to all residents regardless of race or income.
