Tim left Conway to return to his Viking roots in Denmark (his mother is Danish), studying and teaching at the Århus School of Architecture and working at the Århus Parks Department. His interests ranged from ecosystem restoration (wetlands and fjords) to the design of natural play and learning environments for children. Since returning to Oregon, Tim’s work has focused on conservation planning, first as a city planner for Portland and later as a consultant to communities throughout Oregon. Tim’s recent projects include Local Wetland Inventories for Junction City and Pendleton, a Management Plan for the 2,100-acre Smith & Bybee Wetlands in North Portland; and a Master Plan for a 62-acre, publicly-owned working farm with an active environmental educational program, a native plant propagation site, and planned restoration of wetland, floodplain and forest habitats.
