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. But it isn’t just the vibrant communities and amenities that attract people; world-class park systems and access to various public lands are just as important as lively brewpubs and an established music scene, and six national wildlife refuges are among the areas easily accessible to this major metro area.

10 Cities Campaign: Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge

Tucked behind the Mall of America and close to the Minneapolis/Saint Paul Airport is a gateway to what seems like another world. It’s hard to believe that one can leave a large indoor retail space and minutes later be in a quiet natural area, where bald eagles fly and walking the wilderness trails make you feel like you’re hundreds of miles away from anything. Even in a state that prides itself on its public lands, Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge stands out.
