Rivers, creeks and streams course their way throughout the greater Portland metro region.
Read the spring issue of Our Big Backyard, Metro's quarterly parks and nature magazine, to learn more about the work that Metro and other agencies and organizations are doing to restore rivers. From the wilder reaches of the Clackamas River to the urban stretches of the Willamette River, a number of restoration projects in the area in recent years are collectively making a big difference for water quality, fish and wildlife.
