River City Confidential: The Willamette River’s Pollution Story Revealed

Come one, come all!

"River City Confidential: The Willamette River’s Pollution Story Revealed."

March 21, 2012 7:00-8:30 pm.

EcoTrust Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center, Billy Frank Jr. Conference Center, 721 NW 9th Ave., Portland, OR, United States View on Google Maps

"James Hillegas shares insights from his upcoming book on the original Willamette River pollution cleanup, from the 1920s to the 1970s. Co-hosted by the Portland Harbor Community Advisory Group and Oregon Historical Society."


  1. I would have enjoyed this presentation. However, my husband and I, and several others, were at the Widmer Gasthuas last night, per the venue published in a schedule handed out at a previous Portland Harbor Partnership event.

    Usually a change in venue is accompanied for signs at the "wrong" location to help the traveler. Not so with The Portland Harbor Partnership.

    greatly disappointed-

  2. Hi Katie,

    Thanks for the comment. I had zero control of the venue, but I certainly understand the frustration. I would suspect that the PHP folks would be keen to hear your feedback:

    I'm in the process of developing a new blog devoted to Willamette River pollution issues -- and water pollution generally -- and will post my PowerPoint slide deck there as soon as I figure out how to do it:

    Feel free to check out my new blog focused on water pollution!
