14 Refuges: Portland-Vancouver Urban Wildlife Refuge Project

Portland, Oregon is a bustling port town that’s experiencing rapid growth, and faces many challenges around striking a balance between preservation of public lands, investing in communities, and promoting economic investment. Across the Columbia River in Washington, the city of Vancouver is becoming a magnet for people moving to the region for work and retirement.

Reacquaint Yourself With Wildlife Refuges in 10 Cities

In 2018, we’re going to remind people to get engaged with wildlife refuges by highlighting events and activities taking place around the country, from cleaning up rivers and waterways in Los Angeles to observing butterflies in South Texas to youth leaders from underrepresented communities learning about the fragile wetland ecosystem in Florida. We hope that people will feel energized and engaged by taking part in one of these events, or leave  with a greater understanding of the benefits of conservation, and that they continue to visit their community’s wildlife refuges or participate in related local programs for years to come!
