KEEP IT LOCAL
We engaged local illustrator Amy Ruppel to create some fun and friendly
art for our campaign. She’s one of a handful of local artists gaining
national recognition and putting Portland on the map. You can see more
of her work at amyruppel.com.
Together we’ll turn our city from grey to green by planting thousands of
trees. It’s our job to spread a positive message of growth, renewal,
and what we can all do together.
So come on, Plant it Portland!
Let’s all discover the good things that grow on trees!
