Portland Trails annual meeting is more than just a meeting, its an annual celebration of great ideas from our community!



Our annual meeting is a night of the best ideas in trails, transportation, conservation, and placemaking from members of our community. The 15×15 presentation style inspires presenters to be deep, brief, and snappy; and it inspires audiences to walk away educated and entertained.

Presenters get 15 slides, and 15 seconds per slide, to share the story of their idea or innovation. In years past, we’ve heard from lawyers, middle schoolers, bridge builders, botanists and more. Join us for an evening of great ideas, snacks, drinks and community!
