Portland Walking Tours

Other Tours: Cutting Edge Green Tour

It ain't easy being green! Come see why Portland is consistently touted as one of America's greenest cities. On this tour we hit the streets and look at Portland's effort to transform itself from a nineteenth-century shipping port into a twenty-first-century sustainable city. On this tour we'll tour some of the city's most notable "green buildings," including the LEEDs Gold Certified Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center, as well as the recently renovated Platinum Certified Gerding Theater. We'll tour a real live eco-roof and we'll be sure to drop by the City's Bureau of Development and Sustainability along the way as we explore these linked themes of sustainability, conservation, alternative transportation and livability. The tour takes approximately 2.5 hours and will cover a little over one mile of physical distance.
