I. National Park Service

Tillamook OR | 2002-2003

Collaboration with eco-artist Jackie Brookner. Three separate but related projects, designed to address the issues and environment unique to each of the three sites.


The Hoquarten Slough once served as a water route to Tillamook, Oregon, for fishing boats entering the city from the Pacific Ocean. Before European settlement, the Tillamook Indian Tribe hunted and fished in and around the slough’s rich natural environment. The Hoquarten Interpretive Trail, to be built along the banks of the slough, will illustrate the history of the area while also providing a safe pedestrian and bike path.

A partnership between England Foundation for the Arts, National Park Service and the National Endowment for the Arts.
