Stewardship Saturday at NE Ainsworth Habitat Corridor
Columbia Slough Watershed Council
We're very excited to be making the second installment of the NE Ainsworth Habitat Corridor, a collaboration between PBOT, BES, Columbia Slough Watershed Council, Wisdom of the Elders, and Portland Audubon Society. This project is part of the Neighborhood to River (N2R) program that connects city stormwater infrastructure to water quality in rivers and streams. The ultimate goal of this project is to create a habitat corridor that runs from Alberta Park all the way to Fernhill Park!
The NE Ainsworth Habitat corridor will create native wildlife habitat for birds, pollinators, and other wildlife, as well as mitigate stormwater runoff and improve water quality in the Columbia Slough. Habitat corridors in urban areas are important for aiding migration between otherwise isolated wildlife populations, promoting genetic diversity and resilience. We will be planting native shrubs, trees, grasses, and rushes to create sources of food and shelter for migrating and resident insects and birds.

About Columbia Slough Watershed Council

The Columbia Slough Watershed Council is a community based organization that works to foster action to protect, enhance, restore, and revitalize the Columbia Slough and its watershed. We work to accomplish our mission through education, community involvement, and stewardship. Our vision is an urban watershed rich in clean water and healthy habitats that supports the needs of fish, wildlife, plants, and people.
The Columbia Slough Watershed Council has three main interests: education, community involvement, and stewardship. Our education program focuses on Slough School, a hands-on science classroom and field trip program for students kindergarten through high school. Community involvement includes workshops and special events, such as Explorando El Columbia Slough and the Columbia Slough Regatta. Through monitoring and restoration activities, we work to improve the natural areas in the watershed.
