Disaster Relief Trials PDX Slated for Cully Park

Cully Park, in NE Portland, has lots of barely navigable Rough Terrain opportunities, full amenities for human comfort, fun playground landscaping, wide-open spaces, and stark views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Saint Helens. Formerly home to Multnomah and Clackamas people as well as other tribes and bands, Cully Park has recently been re-seeded with one of the first peoples food staples, Camas. The pink flower of the starchy camas bulb will color the area for the first time in decades, come this spring. Prior to European colonization, camas filled the local meadows for thousands of years, encouraged by proto-agricultural controlled burns.
