Cool Maps! Habitat Change Maps Compare Historic Floodplain to Current Conditions

Want to compare how floodplain habitat in the lower Columbia River has changed since the late 1880's? Now you can! Check out the Estuary Partnership's new on-line habitat change analysis maps. They mark the first time a comparison of "pre-development" conditions to current habitat conditions have been calculated for the entire lower Columbia River.
