Kerry Island

Red Marker Kerry Island

When a Columbia County family contacted Columbia Land Trust about conserving this 109-acre parcel, we agreed to help. Located within the Westport Slough--a Columbia River side channel near the community of Westport--Kerry Island offers a unique chance to restore tidally influenced scrub-shrub and forested wetlands. Once restored, Kerry Island will provide ideal nesting habitat for local and migrating Neotropical birds, critical breeding and egg-laying habitat for a suite of amphibians, as well as cover and shade for rearing salmonids. Our first step? With input from the community, we'll develop a management plan for Kerry Island that will guide our restoration work in the coming years.
