Estuarine Science, Management, and Restoration II For Oregon’s estuaries, we need to: Protect and conserve the remaining critical estuarine habitat. Restore former or degraded estuarine habitats where feasible. Link estuarine restoration actions to upland and upstream restoration and enhancement efforts for a whole-watershed approach. In November , the Estuary Restoration Act (ERA) was signed into law. It makes restoring our nation’s estuaries a national priority, with a goal of restoring one million acres of estuarine habitat by NOAA is providing the necessary data, science, tools and long-term monitoring efforts to help reach the ERA’s million-acre goal.
Astoria, Oregon is both a gateway and the hub in a region steeped in history. Standing at the top of the Astoria Column, you can envision the hardships, bravery, and awe experienced by the first people to live in this corner of the world. Dedicated by the Great Northern Railway in , the Astoria Column stands today as a monument to those people. National Estuaries Day began in to promote the importance of estuaries and the need to protect them. In partnership with the National Estuaries Program, National Estuarine Research Reserve Association, Restore America’s Estuaries, and many other organizations, we have extended the festivities to a whole week.
The restoration of eelgrass (Zostera marina L.) is a high priority for Puget Sound ecosystem recovery. In , the State of Washington set a restoration target to increase eelgrass abundance by 20% in Puget Sound by Locating areas to restore eelgrass effectively . Definition. The Estuarine System (Fig. 3) consists of deepwater tidal habitats and adjacent tidal wetlands that are usually semienclosed by land but have open, partly obstructed, or sporadic access to the open ocean, and in which ocean water is at least occasionally diluted by freshwater runoff from the land.

Figure Distribution of estuarine habitat in Oregon (Scranton ). The report is organized in the following manner. After 1988 book introductory chapter (Chapter 1), Chapter Two describes Oregon’s current estuarine policy and related state and federal policies.
Chapter Three provides an inventory of recent permitted impacts and associated estuarine resource replacement. Chapter Four consists of a brief summary of the status of estuarine ecology and restoration Author: Anna Buckley. This book examines the economic value of coastal restoration as it pertain’s to the nation’s coasts and estuaries.

Clarendon Blvd. Suite Arlington, VA Astoria Bank Has Joined Sterling National Bank.
On October 2,Astoria Bank joined Sterling National Bank, creating an even stronger organization, with more resources and a greater depth of expertise that will benefit all of our clients. The Skagit River is the largest river in the Puget Sound estuarine system. It discharges about 39% of total sediment and more than 20% of freshwater into Puget Sound.
The Skagit River delta provides rich estuarine and freshwater habitats for salmon and many other wildlife species. Restoration means the return of an ecosystem to a close approximation of its previously existing condition (e.g., NRC, ; Lewis, ).Habitat restoration is defined as returning the condition of an altered or disturbed habitat to a close approximation of a.
Restoration of estuarine flushing in this area would entail detailed field analysis including the feasibility of removal of the fill. The area is approximately 40 acres in size. It is unknown what impact the newly created National Wildlife Refuge status will have on this area and its potential restoration.
Estuarine environments are rich and diverse ecological systems potentially under threat by intense humanisation. This is the case of the Ebro Delta, an alluvial plain devoted to intensive agricultural activities, that requires of effective monitoring tools to assess the exposure of non-target organisms to operationally used insecticides and.
An obvious linkage between bank and ecological processes is represented by the role that riparian vegetation may have on bank stability. Recently, much progress has been made in this field, in particular emphasizing understanding and modeling of hydrological effects and mechanical root reinforcement (Simon and Collison, ; Pollen, ; Van De Wiel and Darby, ).
Estuarine Mitigation Policy in Oregon: A History. Oregon's Coastal Zone Management Program requires mitigation for estuarine intertidal fill and removal, by creation, restoration or enhancement of another area to maintain the biological and physical processes of the system.
The evolution of this policy into a Statute and Administration Rule involved lengthy discussion and compromise between a. This chapter provides an overview of mangrove management, assessment, and monitoring. It addresses the need for integrated planning and management, based on sound legal principles.
Chicken Island Restoration Workshop. On April 4th, an educational event was held for the public to inform them about the Chicken Island Red Mangrove/Oyster Restoration Project (Project) at the Marine Discovery Center (MDC), in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
The day of the event 33 public participants came to view the project details. The role of adaptive management in the restoration of degraded diked salt hay farm wetlands.

2 sets of hardcopy maps displaying the key themes used in the analysis of restoration of opportunities. Introduction ONRC staff compiled and updated all the datasets relevant to analysis of estuarine conditions in Willapa Bay.
Much of the basic data was assembled in the s by the Willapa Alliance, a local non-profit organization. The marine/estuarine group within the Aquatic Habitat Conservation and Restoration Section works in partnership with other agencies to identify, design and implement marine and estuarine habitat restoration projects.
In addition, this group coordinates with project partners and stakeholders in order to address larger marine and estuarine. Field analysis showed that the failures were restricted to only the portions of the highway with damaged man-made drainage systems.
The broken drainages probably facilitated saturation and erosion. For more information about any of our estuarine restoration programs, please contact Georgia Zernext.or [email protected] How Can We Serve You.

The water is generally partially enclosed or cut off from the ocean, and may consist of channels, sloughs, and mud and sand flats.
River mouths, lagoons, and bays often constitute estuarine habitat.Habitat restoration in the Columbia River estuary (CRE) is an important off-site mitigation action in the Biological Opinion (BiOp), an operation of the Federal Columbia River Power System. The CRE, defined as the tidally influenced stretch of river from the mouth to Bonneville Dam miles upstream, is part of the migration pathway for.Restoration experiments for eelgrass in the late s and early s showed that the general environmental quality in Elkhorn Slough is adequate to support survival and expansion of eelgrass populations if substrate of appropriate depth (0 to 2 m Mean Lower Low Water) and water flow ( cm/s peak flow) is available (Zimmerman and Caffrey.
