Free Teacher Workshop: Outdoor Science Education on School GroundsOregon K-6 teachers: Join our team of experienced outdoor educators for a day of learning how to make outdoor education a regular part of your school year curriculum. Outdoor education promotes active learning through direct personal experience and is a fun and exciting way for students to demonstrate critical thinking in a collaborative environment.
The Estuary Partnership is undertaking the first, large-scale effort to identify and map marine debris in the lower Columbia River from Bonneville Dam to the Pacific Ocean. We're tracking small to medium size marine debris (less than 35-feet) - things like tires, styrofoam blocks, small boats, machinery, and other material that may harm the river. We'll use this information to understand how big the problem is, and make a plan for how to clean it up.Submit your marine debris sightings here or view our marine debris map of the lower river here.
