The Columbia Slough Watershed Council celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and there are a thousand stories to tell. This video is a compilation of a few of the stories told at the Slough Stories event in November 2014. This is part of an effort to document efforts large and small that have improved the Columbia Slough watershed and raised public awareness of the waterway and the region. Enjoy this trip down memory lane (or should we say a paddle down memory slough).

Whitaker Ponds Documentary
Filmmaker Dave McFarland first visited Whitaker ponds with his Son’s school friend trip through the Slough School Program (partnership with City of Portland’s Clean Rivers Education Program). He was intrigued by the contrast of the natural and industrial world that surrounds Whitaker Ponds. This film was inspired by his experience at Whitaker Ponds Nature Park. Columbia Slough Watershed Council thanks Dave for his work on this beautiful portrait of the park.
