Restoration grant opens doors for The Freshwater Trust

Thanks to a $15,000 grant from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, The Freshwater Trust is now developing a plan for low-impact restoration in federally designated wilderness areas of northwestern Oregon. The funding will be used to research and plan habitat restoration on four tributaries of the Salmon River. Learn about how the research will improve wilderness conditions.

The Freshwater Trust and the Sandy River Basin Partners have also received two awards for their efforts to restore Salmon River, a large tributary to the Sandy River about 43 miles east of Portland. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Conservation Project Award is a national award presented annually to recognize development and implementation of a joint BLM and USFS project with outstanding conservation accomplishments for fish, wildlife, native plants and their habitat on public lands.
