Ridgefield NWR has a total of 5,150 acres of marshes, grasslands, and woodlands. If you haen't been, you've got to go birding at the refuge!
The Westside Economic Alliance is focused on the needs of the Westside of the Portland metropolitan region, which includes Washington County and western Clackamas County, and the cities of Beaverton, Cornelius, Forest Grove, Hillsboro, Sherwood, Tigard, Tualatin and Wilsonville. The Westside Economic Alliance is a proactive organization that invites private sector employers, non-profit organizations, and real estate developers to sit at the same table as community leaders to shape local public policy. The result is a unique partnership that benefits both the businesses and communities of the Westside.
