This week Metro debuts Our Big Backyard, a quarterly magazine that will bring you up to speed on parks, trails and natural areas – and introduce you to important choices facing the region. In each edition, you’ll find feature stories, field guides, Q&As, event previews, a photography contest and more.
Our Big Backyard replaces GreenScene, updating Metro’s quarterly publication with eye-catching photography and design, compelling storytelling and grab-and-go tools that empower you to explore. The revamp was shaped by an audience survey, which gave a clear picture of what’s important to readers in our increasingly digital world.
Four times a year, you can have Our Big Backyard delivered to your doorstep – or your in-box – for free. In the winter edition, you’ll get the scoop on geocaching, learn about changes on the horizon at Newell Creek Canyon in Oregon City, meet the elder statesman of Oxbow Regional Park and explore recipes for earth-friendly cleaners.
