Crystal Springs Restoration

In the early 2000s we visited Portland’s Reed College campus to look at what was then the beginning of an effort to bring salmon back to an urban stream. We returned this past summer to see how things have turned out. We find an urban creek that’s now home to river otters, brook lamprey, steelhead and salmon.
