Restorative Design: The Confluence Bird Blind by Maya Lin

Combining natural history, culture and design, the Confluence Bird Blind asks us to consider evolving land ethic and one’s role in a sustainable future. Join Confluence for this informative hike through the significantly restored Sandy River Delta and discuss using design as a means to greater ecological awareness.

Lin and Confluence are bringing landscape installations and ecological restoration to six locations along the Columbia River System. For more information, visit

The hike is a flat, 2.4 miles roundtrip. The group will meet at the kiosk near the restrooms.

Festival Event registration is closed.
