A group of neighbors in north Portland are mobilizing a last-ditch effort to save an oak savannah and heritage tree on a spot of land they call ‘Overlook Bluff’.
The savannah is located in the neighborhood north of Overlook Park, west of Interstate Avenue, overlooking the Willamette River.
 Friends of Overlook Bluff was organized about 3 years ago to work to save the meadow and tree. 
The group has raised over four hundred thousand dollars to try to buy the property to protect it from development, but they need twice that amount to purchase the land.
And now, the owner has announced that he’s ready to sell the land to the highest bidder. 3:58 minutes (3.63 MB)
