I am looking for a variety of locations in the watershed to exhibit my work and give presentations on the Green River Gorge Greenway documentary and my hike down the entire river gorge in 2016.  If you can connect me to potential places to exhibit please see contact info below.

 

About the Green River Gorge Greenway

The Green River Gorge is located southeast of Seattle between the two communities of Black Diamond and Enumclaw.  The 12 mile long river carved gorge connects the foothills of the Cascade mountains to the Puget Sound lowlands of the Green River Valley. The gorge’s rugged remoteness creates a unique opportunity to preserve this wilderness landscape next to a growing urban area of over two million residents...if we act now. 

The river winds through towering sandstone cliffs. Steep forest provides safe passage for wildlife.  The natural shade and cold unpolluted natural springs cool the temperature of the water as it flows through the gorge.  That cool unpolluted water is key to protecting salmon and other species throughout the entire length of the Green-Duwamish river.  

At the two book ends of the gorge are two historic State Parks that provide recreation for the local and regional communities.  People swim, picnic, boat, hike, and camp there.  Within the gorge, in between the parks, there is plenty of solitude to escape for a day to hike, fish, horseback or bike ride along the river.  

In 2016 Lisa Parsons was the first documented person to hike down the entire Green River Gorge to launch a documentary project called “The Green River Gorge Greenway”. by Lisa Parsons is exhibiting her photos of the Gorge is part of a larger documentary of photography, video, written word, and social media outreach that tells the story of the conservation history and stories of people connected to the river.

The exhibit is following the course of the Green—Duwamish river from Enumclaw to Seattle where the river flows into Puget Sound.
