Friends Receive $35,000 to Restore South Riverboat Unit

Go to FAQs page

Friends of the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge are helping with the complete restoration of the South Riverboat Unit. The Friends have received a $10,000 grant from The Reser Family Foundation and a $25,000 grant from Metro to help restore this unit. This year we are planting nearly 13,000 native trees and shrubs with volunteers (that means you!). This project is an opportunity to restore an important habitat for wildlife and birds as part of the larger restoration of the Tualatin River Watershed. Since it is on a National Wildlife Refuge, you can be confident that this important work will always remain protected.

Every Saturday and Wednesday from January 10 to March 28, 2015, the Friends and the Refuge will be conducting planting work parties at South Riverboat. This unit of the Refuge is closed to the public, so this is a special chance to see this property that borders the Tualatin River. As an added bonus, site tours of the property will be held from time to time following work parties.

The Friends would like to thank The Reser Family Foundation and Metro, along with our other partner organizations, for making this project possible. Now all we need is you!
