In the not-so-distant future, a Tualatin-area natural area will link a continuous 50-mile regional trail system connecting the Willamette River in Wilsonville to the same river in North Portland.

With that in mind, Metro, area city administrators and others met with U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici at the Heritage Pine Natural Area on Wednesday, Aug 14, to call attention to a need for federal funding to help support continuing plans for an expansive regional trails systems.

Heritage Pine, which butts up to Tualatin city limits, is the linchpin in a regional trail system where it will someday serve as a hub.
