Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

Abstract This project, one of many proposed by the Oregon Wildlife Coalition, is considered an ongoing enhancement project under the Securing Wildlife Mitigation Sites – Oregon project (Umbrella Project 9705900) as it was recommended for FY1999 funding. This proposal explains the management objectives for wildlife habitat as they relate to the proposed project and describes the link between this project and others proposed under the Coalition’s umbrella project. Combining the efforts of BPA and Metro, over 1100 acres of Willamette River bottomland along the Multnomah Channel is or will soon be under public ownership for wildlife habitat protection and enhancement. This complex of emergent tidal marshes, forest wetlands, sloughs, and small lakes are diverse and species-rich. On the 306 acres Metro has acquired to date, there is very high potential for wetland enhancement. Over 24 acres of degraded riparian habitat area along the Multnomah Channel and creeks on Metro’s property will be re-vegetated with native plant material in 1998. More information is needed to characterize the bottomland’s ecosystem and to develop appropriate enhancement objectives and opportunities. Topographic, hydrologic, and wildlife habitat assessment information will be acquired in 1998 and 1999. Utilizing Metro’s GIS, this data will be used to develop site plans and designs for wetland enhancement projects. A watershed management plan for streams draining the adjacent Tualatin Mountains onto Multnomah Channel bottomlands will be developed.
