Restoration efforts in Columbia River estuary boosted

The Lower Columbia River Estuary Partnership recently announced that they have increased their goal to restore the river from Bonneville Dam to the Pacific Ocean. Having already restored 14,000 acres they hope to restore another 5,000 to benefit the native ecosystem that relies on a healthy river. Human development spanning more than a century has degraded the estuary, an important part of the Columbia for salmonids. See here for more information.
