Restoring the Slough
Creeping water primrose, an invasive aquatic plant, is choking out the Willamette Slough, impacting water quality, habitat, and recreation opportunities. Efforts are underway to control the aggressively growing plant.
We are thankful for the support of the City of Keizer, Glenn Gibson Watershed Council, Marion Soil and Water Conservation District, North Santiam Watershed Council, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Oregon State Parks, Salem Audubon Society, Salem Environmental Education, and Willamette Riverkeepers.
