Building Green Cities

Moderator: Mike Houck – America’s Wild Reed – May 6, 2012
This past weekend I took a seven-mile stroll from my northwest Portland apartment to nearby Forest Park.  Half-way back I heard that shrill-high pitched call of a bald eagle.  Then, there were two, four and finally six bald eagles kettled high  above the forest canopy—the hot white light of the sun’s glare making it impossible to tell young from adult.  Six bald eagles in a 5,000-acre forest, a ten minute walk from my home in the densest neighborhood in the Portland metropolitan region.  I’m tempted to use my last blog to recount similar encounters with the urban wild over the past forty-two years.
