Private Project

Wapato Lake National Wildlife Refuge Partnership

Tree for All partners have been working closely with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services for nearly a decade to restore the Wapato Lake National Wildlife Refuge near Gaston, Oregon. This project and dozens of others benefit water quality, wildlife habitat, floodplain access and storage in the Tualatin Valley.

One of America’s largest and most successful landscape conservation programs, Tree for All takes a community-based, systems approach to building watershed resiliency. Since 2005, Tree for All partners have restored more than 140 river and tributary miles in Oregon's Tualatin River Watershed.
