    The Columbia River estuary is a unique and important ecological resource. EPA's National Estuary Program (NEP) was established by Congress in in Clean Water Act amendments to improve the quality of estuaries of national significance. The Columbia River estuary File Size: 2MB. Today, the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership, a local restoration and education organization, estimates that 80 percent of the estuary’s historical tidal wetland habitat has been damaged or lost to human development. Even in its heavily altered state, the lower Columbia River Estuary remains an ecological marvel of global significance.

[Steven Jeffries; Columbia River Estuary Data Development Program.; Columbia River Estuary Study Taskforce.; United States. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.]. The Columbia River Estuary IBA runs from the Columbia River Plume (consistent with BirdLife International's Marine IBA designation) to approximately river mile 60 at Crims Island (near Mayger, Oregon, and across from Stella, Washington), consistent with Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network designation.

    Estuarine and Ocean Ecology Program. Our program studies key linkages between physical processes, such as upwelling or local habitat conditions, and the growth and survival of fish and invertebrates in the coastal Pacific ocean and estuaries. Second, in the Columbia River estuary and estuaries of Puget Sound, we investigate how estuarine. This project is made possible with contributions from a number of partners, including the Bonneville Power Administration, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Columbia River Estuary Study Taskforce (CREST), which has been a key player in numerous restoration projects along the Columbia on: Commercial St, Astoria, Oregon,

The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean.

The river is 1, miles (2, km) long, and Mouth: Pacific Ocean, at Clatsop County, Oregon. An estuary is the area where the fresh water of a river meets the salt water of an ocean.

In the Columbia River system, this occurs in the lower 46 river miles. In an estuary, the river has a direct, natural connection with the open sea. This transition from fresh to salt water creates a special environment that supports unique communities of plants and animals, specially adapted for life at.

Provide valuable points of comparison between hatchery and wild stocks with regard to behavior and survival through the estuary and lower Columbia River. Future Research Performance of upriver stocks should be measured from the time adults enter the estuary rather than from the time they encounter the first dam km upstream.

Wildlife. The Estuary is one of the most important areas within the Pacific Flyway for migrating shorebirds and neotropical bird species, and it provides key wintering waterfowl habitat. The area is particularly important for the dusky Canada goose, a subspecies that winters only along the lower Columbia, in the Willamette Valley, and at a few locations on the Oregon coast.

A m-deep borehole has been drilled through the Holocene fill of the ancestral Columbia River estuary near the river mouth at Warrenton, Oregon ().The borehole samples, which have been radiocarbon dated to ages as great as 16 ka, record the long-term history of bedload sediment supply, deposition, and bypassing to the ocean in the Columbia River littoral cell system (Baker, ).Cited by: Lewis and Clark Refuge, near the mouth of the Columbia River, provides wintering and resting areas for an estimated 1, tundra swans, 5, geese, ducks.

Other species include shorebirds and bald eagles. Estuary waters provide vital food resources for juvenile salmon as they pause to become acclimated to salt water before entering. T he exploration of the north bank of the Columbia River estuary from the Cascades to the Coast is one of the most dramatic and varied episodes in the entire story of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
