Water Quality in the Tualatin River Watershed

Presented by Jennifer Nelson
Program Manager, Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District

Did you know our water quality is getting better all the time? Jennifer will help us understand how healthy streamside buffers help protect water quality downstream, provide wildlife habitat, and even support pollinators.  She will update us on what the district has accomplished for you through their restoration program and share some ways in which you can attract and help pollinators like bees at your property.


Update on the Fernhill Wetlands Project

Presented by Victoria Lowe
Member of Fernhill Wetlands Council and instigator of Forest Grove’s Sustainability Committee

If you have driven by the Fernhill Wetlands since May, you have seen excavators and earth movers at work, transforming 90 acres of former sewage lagoons into natural treatment wetlands. The area was hydro-seeded and 750,000 more native plants were installed. Clean Water Services has designed the project as a showcase for innovative water treatment that also will enhance habitat greatly. Victoria will talk about these changes and its anticipated impacts on the region.

We will also have information for you to take home from Metro on Natural Gardening as well as brochures from the Xerces Society on “Establishing Pollinator Meadows from Seed”. Q&A.
