The Freshwater Trust

Project: Scalable Tools for Freshwater Restoration

Year: 2015 Grant Amount: $15,000 Location: Portland, OR

Funding will enable the exploration of web-based platforms and standardized tools that will support the deployment of recently developed tools, protocols and methodologies that better account for the water quality impacts of land uses, model the restoration potential of improvement projects, prioritize projects with maximal environmental benefit, and monitor long-term results of completed projects.  These scalable tools will help to truly address the needs of our freshwater ecosystems on a timeline that matters by setting accurate and meaningful restoration goals, directing conservation resources to the projects that help us achieve these goals in the best possible way, and monitor and track long-term progress.  Project planning and monitoring activities are historically difficult to fund, as traditional restoration partners prefer to support more tangible, on-the-ground actions.

Trailkeepers of Oregon

Project: Eagle Creek Fire Area Trail Restoration

Year: 2018 Grant Amount: $10,000 Location: Portland, OR

This project will improve up to 25 miles of trail and associated slopes in the Columbia Gorge, aiding restoration and recovery of the impacted ecosystem. It will also engage hundreds of volunteers and reopen trails affected by the Eagle Creek Fire.

Last year the Eagle Creek Fire burned over 48,500 acres and impacted some of the most beautiful and iconic sites in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. While fires are a natural part of many forested ecosystems the impacts of the Eagle Creek Fire will be a difficult challenge into the future due to the steep slopes of the Columbia Gorge.


Upper Deschutes Watershed Council

Project: Whychus Creek strategic planning & projects

Year: 2014 Grant Amount: $30,000 Location: Bend, OR

Provides support to develop a Strategic Action Plan for Whychus Creek using the framework developed in collaboration with the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board.  The Strategic Action Plan outlines the integrated restoration activities of the Watershed Council (stream restoration, fish passage, fish screening and education), the Deschutes Land Trust (land conservation) and the Deschutes River Conservancy (streamflow restoration) for the period of 2015-2021.

This effort will build off of the successful partnership work that has occurred in Whychus Creek over the past decade and help guide the future restoration efforts of these partner organizations.
