-Cascade recently assisted the Hopkins Demonstration Forest staff with overseeing volunteers who installed over 900 plants at the amphibian pond site. Emergent wetland, scrub-shrub, willow, and riparian upland plants were planted on a beautiful sunny Sunday.
We were excited to see that the site is already home to at least 14 red-legged frog egg masses, and several rough-skinned newts.
As part of the Clackamas Partnership Strategic Planning project, Cascade developed and submitted a restoration implementation grant proposal to the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB). OWEB selected the Partnership to receive a Focused Investment Partnership (FIP) implementation grant. The partnership was awarded $3,454,580 of a 6-year (2019-2025) planned total investment of $8,744,080 to support fish habitat restoration in the Clackamas River Basin and other watersheds, benefitting Chinook salmon, coho salmon, steelhead, and other native fish species. The Partnership estimates leveraging at least an equal amount of additional funding from Partnership organizations and other sources to support their efforts.
“This project is a great investment of the state’s Lottery dollars,” says Meta Loftsgaarden, OWEB’s

supporting the local natural resource economy.”
