Ever wonder about that slow-moving channel of water running through Gresham, Fairview, and NE & N Portland? This free hands-on workshop will explore the unique character, challenges and opportunities of the Columbia Slough and its Watershed. Open to everyone interested in learning more about the Columbia Slough Watershed.

  • Youll learn about soil & sediment in relation to water quality, how the Slough has changed over time, and what that means for fish, wildlife, people and businesses.
  • Explore Macroinvertebrates (water bugs) that live in the Slough. Simulate and predict aquifer conditions with an interactive groundwater model.
  • Test water quality through dissolved oxygen, temperature, and PH levels.


Pre-registration is required for this free workshop.
Light refreshments will be provided. Suitable for adults and teens 14 & up.

Organizer: Columbia Slough Watershed Council
