Salmon in the city

Habitat Support funds restore local fish passage

Habitat Support funds restore local fish passage

Did you know there’s only one place in the Portland metro area where youheader-funding-our-future can view salmon in their natural habitat? The 52-square-mile Johnson Creek Watershed is a vital piece of urban wildlife habitat that supports threatened coho, steelhead and Chinook where they return to spawn each year.

With $25,000 from the PGE Habitat Support fund, two rusty and clogged culverts were removed in September 2016 and replaced with a much larger and stronger culvert, once again opening Badger Creek to fish. Your support made it possible to open 1.6 miles of habitat to salmon and other fish.

For an additional $2.50 per month, you can directly support projects like this by adding Habitat Support to your renewable option.
