This project connects a 12-acre non-tidal wetland to the main-stem Columbia River. Historically, the area existed as open water of the main stem Columbia River. Dredge material disposal over the last 80 years created a peninsular shaped landform with an isolated 12-acre shallow water wetland in its center. The project connects this wetland to the Columbia through channel excavation and installation of a culvert. Additional wetland expansion, invasive plant control, and planting of native species to restore a total of 18 acres. The project site is located across from the city of Longview at Columbia River mile 64.
Estuary Partnership funds provided by the Bonneville Power Administration contributed to the design phase of this project.
