Fall is here once again and the welcomed rain has been a relief for so many in the PNW, especially our neighbors in Eastern Washington, Southern Oregon and Northern California. As we search and advocate to find solutions to the problems of the lower Willamette River, we must be aware of the challenges that other parts of the Willamette River face. The upper Willamette River and the ecosystem are threatened by failed measures. It’s time for change, something new and different, please click on the editorial links below and explore some of the new solutions to rescue our river and it’s ecosystems.
Remember, we have a “New” Portland Harbor CAG YouTube page. “Subscribe here”. Now you have access to our monthly virtual meetings, forums, and presentations.
