Intertwine Alliance
The Intertwine Alliance is a coalition of 150+ public, private, and nonprofit organizations working to integrate nature more deeply into the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan region.

Partners share a collective vision for a thriving, multi-jurisdictional, inter-connected system of neighborhood, community and regional parks, natural areas, trails, open spaces, educational programming, and recreation opportunities distributed equitably throughout the region.

The region-wide system known as The Intertwine:

  • Drives the region's economy and tourist trade
  • Preserves significant natural areas for wildlife habitat and public use
  • Enhances the region's air and water quality
  • Promotes citizens' health, fitness, and personal well-being
  • Connects the region's communities with trails and greenways
  • Provides sense of place and community
  • Achieves equity, including racial equity
  • Supports an ecologically sustainable metropolitan area
  • Support residents in lifelong learning about and stewardship of nature
  • Reduces, mitigates, and helps us adapt to climate change

Sitka provides leadership, capacity, and expertise that is helping us actualize our vision for the region's network of parks, trails and natural areas. It is truly a mission-driven organization.
