It's Endangered Species Day - a good day to reflect on all the things we do in Portland to protect and restore our native fish and wildlife habitat. In Portland, 15 fish species are listed under the Endangered Species Act. Listed salmon and steelhead are found in 127 miles of Portland’s rivers and streams. Learn more about the issues and what we’re doing here.
Check out this video of a project Environmental Services did last year to improve habitat and water quality for juvenile salmon that take refuge in the Lower Columbia Slough as they migrate. The log jams are upstream of Kelley Point Park.
