The Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership is a 501(c)(3) and a National Estuary Program working to restore and protect the lower Columbia River, from Bonneville Dam to the Pacific Ocean. Our mission is "to improve the lower Columbia River by protecting and restoring ecosystems and enhancing clean water for current and future generations of fish, wildlife, and people." We are a collaborative organization working in partnership with the many diverse interests of the lower river, including farmers, educators, businesses and economic interests, conservation interests, community members, state governments, federal agencies, and tribal governments. Our primary areas of work are habitat restoration, water quality monitoring and toxics reduction, outdoor education, and public stewardship. The Estuary Partnership also coordinates the Lower Columbia River Water Trail.
