The Steigerwald Reconnection Project is well into its second year of construction. By 2022, the refuge's lands and Gibbons Creek, which flows through it, will be reconnected to the Columbia River for the first time in generations. This effort will bring a lot of changes to the Refuge, and we're excited to share them with you while the project takes shape!
Check the Refuge 20/20 Blog for the latest construction and project updates. And watch this background/update video below from September 2020.
