Local Girl Scout Cadette Troop Helps Beautify Leik Grove
Ed Leik created Leik Grove in 1995 as a memorial to his parents, but it was originally his brother, Charles’ idea. It started as a project to plant and preserve trees and help the earth. We wanted to help that dream. We took time trying to figure out how to bring the place to life and make it how we thought it would have looked when the Indians lived there. We made dream-catchers to help add to the cultural experience of the Indian Council Area. It also helps people to understand the local (and non-local) myths surrounding dream-catchers. We added a medicine wheel informational plaque as a tribute to the native americans from the area too. But, overall, we wanted to keep the history that Portland has alive and bright for everyone to see.
If you have some spare time to help maintain the Grove or would like to adopt a themed section (window) you may contact Pamela Minkley via email, email@example.com.
