Oregon: Management Plan Recommends Opening Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge to
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a plan to guide management of the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge for the next 15 years. The Refuge’s five units are located in the Tualatin River basin near Portland. Currently there is no hunting on the 2,000 acres that the Service has acquired, as explained in Alternative 1 (current management). However, under Alternatives 2 and 3 a junior waterfowl hunt is planned in the Riverboat Unit and opportunities for hunting would be explored for the Wapato Lake Unit when an adequate land base is acquired and habitat restoration decisions are made.
