About The Halprin Landscape Conservancy
The Halprin Landscape Conservancy is a volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to preserve, maintain and activate the Portland Open Space Sequence. As stewards, we partner with neighbors, businesses, community organizations and the City of Portland’s Bureau of Parks & Recreation to ensure the Sequence is clean, safe and active — for today and for future generations.
Formed in 2001, we began our work by joining with local property owners to develop the first tree-trimming program for the Keller Fountain and Pettygrove Plaza. We joined forces with the Portland Bureau of Transportation to improve lighting of the plazas and surrounding paths, and worked in tandem with Portland Parks and Recreation to develop a restoration plan for Pettygrove Park. A grant from the City of Portland helped launch the project.
