We're very excited to be making the second installment of the NE Ainsworth Habitat Corridor, a collaboration between PBOT, BES, Columbia Slough Watershed Council, Wisdom of the Elders, and Portland Audubon Society. This project is part of the Neighborhood to River (N2R) program that connects city stormwater infrastructure to water quality in rivers and streams. The ultimate goal of this project is to create a habitat corridor that runs from Alberta Park all the way to Fernhill Park!

The NE Ainsworth Habitat corridor will create native wildlife habitat for birds, pollinators, and other wildlife, as well as mitigate stormwater runoff and improve water quality in the Columbia Slough. Habitat corridors in urban areas are important for aiding migration between otherwise isolated wildlife populations, promoting genetic diversity and resilience. We will be planting native shrubs, trees, grasses, and rushes to create sources of food and shelter for migrating and resident insects and birds.

When signing up, you will have the option to choose between the AM and PM shift (either 9:00am-11:00am or 12:00pm-2:00pm). All tools and equipment will be sanitized between the shifts. Face coverings and 6 ft social distancing required.
