The Willamette River holds historical, natural, and cultural significance for our region’s Tribes. Since time immemorial, Indigenous people have relied on the river for traditional ceremonies, celebrations and harvests that are essential cultural practices. Today, Tribes and local Indigenous communities are among the most impacted by environmental contamination.
Willamette Cove is a former industrial site in North Portland along the east bank of the Willamette River. The in-water, shoreline, and upland areas of Willamette Cove require environmental cleanup to address human and ecological health risks from historical industrial contamination for the site to become a nature park in the future.
The event is sponsored by the City of Portland, Oregon Department of State Lands, Port of Portland and Metro.
