Section 7. Abstract


The FWS as a member of the Oregon Wildlife Coalition (OWC) is seeking funds to implement the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge Additions project identified under the umbrella proposal Securing Wildlife Mitigation Sites - Oregon. The Tualatin River project consists of securing, restoring, and managing lands within the established refuge to protect and enhance anadromous fish, wildlife, threatened and endangered species, and waters of the Tualatin River watershed. Established as a National Wildlife Refuge in 1992, the refuge’s floodplain of seasonal and emergent wetlands, Oregon ash riparian hardwood, riparian shrub, coniferous forest, and Oregon white oak communities are among the best representative examples which remain in the Willamette Valley. The refuge’s richness of habitats support wintering continental populations of high priority waterfowl species, breeding neo-tropical migratory birds, resident and migrating fish species as well as resident mammals, amphibians, and reptiles. A unique opportunity exists to expedite protection of lands through acquisition as a large number of willing sellers have come forward due to the advent of recent major floods. The Tualatin River watershed has been degraded by agriculture and urban expansion, therefore, most lands require restoration as a major focus in management. However degraded, these lands possess tremendous potential in restoration opportunities as evidenced by past projects of the refuge. When acquisition is complete, this new refuge will total over 3,000 acres of biologically diverse habitats which shall further improve storage functions of the floodplain ecosystem. HEP and biological assessment monitoring will provide pre and post restoration baseline data to determine effectiveness of habitat restoration and management practices. The project will mitigate for in-kind in-place and in-kind off-site habitat and target species losses associated with Bonneville and Detroit Dams.
