Tualatin Riverkeepers archivist, John Fervia, will present on the History of the Tualatin River. John tells the story of the Tualatin from the geographic circumstances that created it, to the 24 Atfalat'i villages that once populated the river banks, to the time when steamboats paddled its waters.

He tells of a time when the Tualatin was declared Oregon's most polluted river, and then ends with the effort of the Tualatin Riverkeepers and its partners like Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge to restore this amazing river to its natural state.

Join us for this free talk and dive into a unique look into the History of the Tualatin River. The presentation will take place in the Refuge Visitor Center, no registration required.
