Join the Estuary Partnership, nonprofit Depave, Portland Public Schools, and the Sitton School PTA and community as we rip out a big swath of asphalt to improve their schoolyard. North Portland's Sitton Elementary School has a lot of outside space, but they don’t have a good place to teach their students about native plants, stormwater, and how it affects the nearby Willamette River. The project will remove approximately 3,000 square feet of asphalt and replace it with trees and native plants that infiltrate and filter stormwater, provide shade, and increase students’ access to and understanding of urban nature and green infrastructure. Sitton students will plant the native trees and shrubs later in the fall.  
The Estuary Partnership is accepting proposals for habitat restoration projects in the lower Columbia River designed to improve the access and quality of rearing and refuge habitat for juvenile Pacific salmonds. Applications for this round are due on October 18, 2019. See our habitat restoration project funding page for details.
