Nichols Natural Area
Columbia Riverkeeper holds a conservation easement to restore nearly three acres of a former industrial site on the Columbia River in Hood River.
Its vision for the Nichols Natural Area is to engage, educate, and inspire the diverse communities of the Columbia River Gorge to turn a former industrial site into a vibrant riverfront habitat.
In 2019, more than 600 students participated in the Nichols Natural Area education program and flourishing riparian habitat restoration.
