Section 7. Abstract


Proposed Action: The overall 5 year program consists of Lower Columbia River wetlands GIS mapping, habitat restoration, and evaluation and monitoring. This proposal requests funds to restore 200 acres of wetland and associated upland habitat at Sandy River Delta, and monitor and evaluate restoration success. Restoration, monitoring and evaluation at Sandy River Delta would be part of a series of large scale lower Columbia River habitat restoration and evaluation experiments. Expected Benefits (1994 FWP program goals): Wetland restoration (increased wetland acreage, increased open water, longer wet season, and increased plant diversity) will improve habitat for a community of native plants and animals, including breeding/migrating waterfowl, herptiles, raptors, and other native wildlife and plants. Sandy River Delta is on the Pacific Flyway and is used by a variety of waterfowl and shorebirds. The great blue heron, Canada goose, Spotted sandpiper, yellow warbler and black-capped chickadee have been observed at Sandy River Delta. The band-tailed pigeon , Western pond turtle, lesser scaup and mink potentially occur. A large population of herptiles (including red-legged frogs) is present (Salix, 1992). Mitigation: Replace riparian forest habitat inundated above Bonneville Dam (in-kind, not in-place). Methods: Apply US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) developed and tested wetland restoration strategies on a landscape basis. Outcomes: 1. A wetland restoration and management model that can be implemented in other watersheds of the Pacific Northwest. 2. Restoration of 200 wetland acres at Sandy River Delta. Monitoring: Evaluate restoration response based on: 1. Aerial photography interpretation. 2. Ground based surveys.
