Once Oregon and Portland were environmental leaders but recently many of the city and state's noteworthy projects and policies find themselves on a potential chopping block. On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Bob Sallinger, Urban Conservation director with Willamette Riverkeeper, about proposals at the state and city level to gut wetland, flood plain and tree code protections, and what can be done to reverse this direction.
