About 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. Every person who visits the waterfront will see this high-profile site. The students and community members who help design, implement, and manage the natural area will gain pride and ownership by making a brownfield turn green.

Its vision for the Nichols Natural Area: Engage, educate and inspire the diverse communities of the Columbia River Gorge to turn a former industrial site into vibrant riverfront habitat. Learn more at
