Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership


To improve the lower Columbia River by protecting and restoring ecosystems and enhancing clean water for current and future generations of fish, wildlife and people. 

Bottom Line for Portland

Since 2000, the Estuary Partnership and partners restored 22,685 acres. Its education programs reach 4,000 students annually with free outdoor learning. To date, the Estuary Partnership has provided more than 67,000 students with educational outdoor experiences and worked with nearly 2,800 teachers. Its volunteers and students have planted more than 92,700 trees.

“My students were excited to plant trees and make a difference. Helping them feel connected to the world around them was just as important as the science curriculum.” —Michelle van Grunsven, Hartley Elementary School
