Non-Estuary Partnership Projects

Habitat Restoration projects which are conducted by local restoration partners, and which no funds are contributed by the Estuary Partnership. Major restoration partners include CREST, the Columbia Land Trust, Ash Creek Forest Management, Scappoose Bay Watershed Council, City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services, Lower Columbia Fish Recovery Board, Washington and Oregon states, as well as several others. The Partnership attempts to maintain relevant information for these projects, however much of the project details still need to be acquired.

Grays PUD Bar

The PUD Bar project consists of the rehabilitation of approximately 0.2 miles of the Grays River in the vicinity of RM 11.8. The site is in private ownership. This project aims to improve habitat complexity for 4 listed species and provide spawning opportunities by creating a series of eight (8) riffle/pool sequences where only one pool and two - 500 foot long riffles now exist. Because of the river's recent migration (1999 to present) in this reach, all riparian vegetation, other than grass and blackberries, has been washed away.
