Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge is located at the northern end of the Willamette Valley near Sherwood, Oregon. The concept of creating the refuge originated from local citizens, cities, and governments, and so, it enjoys strong popular support, stemming from a desire to preserve green space where future generations can take part in outdoor recreation and education. Habitats include remnant and restored communities along rivers and streams, emergent, shrub, and forested wetlands, riparian forests, oak and pine meadows and grasslands, and mixed deciduous/coniferous forests common to western Oregon prior to settlement. These habitats are known primarily for their importance to salmon and steelhead, wintering Canada goose, pintail and mallard ducks, and for providing breeding habitat for songbirds.
