Abstract

Tualatin Hills Nature Park (THNP) is a 222-acre greenspace in the heart of Beaverton. With five miles of trails, a nature center, and a unique mosaic of habitats, THNP attracts over 200,000 visitors every year. The Friends of Tualatin Hills Nature Park recently began a project to document the history of THNP by interviewing many of the community members who advocated for its preservation. We present Part 1, a video telling the story from the effort to protect St. Mary's Woods in the early 1970s until the park's original 180 acres were acquired by the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District in 1982, and talk briefly about how the video was made and our future plans.
