How do young salmon find food and refuge from floods and predators? Join the Sandy River Basin Watershed Council to learn the science behind a side channel restoration project at Oxbow's Happy Creek. Restoring habitat lost in a 1960's road-building project, the project created deep pools, bubbling riffles and hiding places for Chinook, coho and steelhead. Learn the characteristics of good habitat and tips on native plants and salmon-friendly practices you can incorporate into your life.

Pets policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at most regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage sensitive habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials. http://www.oregonmetro.gov/parks/pets-policy
