Want to see an example where people took Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi” song and turned it on its head?

The Friends of Baltimore Woods will lead a wildflower walk at a North Portland meadow that was converted from a parking lot.

The public is invited to meet at North Catlin and Decatur on Thursday, Aug. 8, from 7:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
