Stewardship Saturday at Heron Lakes Golf Course
Columbia Slough Watershed Council
Trade in your golf clubs for a shovel and come join us at Heron Lakes Golf Course for another edition of Stewardship Saturdays. This is always a special event as this course sits on the former site of the City of Vanport, and we will discuss the social and historical legacy left in the wake of the floods that destroyed what was once Oregon’s second largest city. Come help add some critical riparian habitat to out-of-play areas at Heron Lakes. Face coverings and 6 ft social distancing required.
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.
