Metro has decided to no longer run the Tour of Untimely Departures. This was not an easy decision; we know the tour is popular and beloved by many. It also requires a large amount of staff time and resources to produce. With all the community engagement efforts Metro Parks and Nature is committed to over the next few years, we are simply unable to host the tour.
We are interested in collaborating with community partners to welcome visitors to Lone Fir through inclusive and accessible activities, where people can share and engage in the diverse history of Lone Fir and Portland through free, family-friendly events. While we don’t have a timeline for a new event, we are interested in building on the Community History Fair that was started last year. Stay tuned for more information.
