Collaboration

We build community, creating strong, long-lasting relationships within our organization and with our diverse partners. We implement our mission through the best available science and research.  In collaboration with our partners we collect, analyze and disseminate critical data to support wetlands conservation, restoration and education. Recognizing conservation of Oregon’s greatest wetlands rely on the actions of local communities, landowners, non-profits and public agencies TWC offers support and technical assistance to others working to conserve them. In partnership with businesses, TWC showcases the ecological, social and economic value of conserving Oregon’s wetlands.

Amphibians in the City

Amphibians are a key indicator species of ecosystem health. Their presence or absence can tell us a lot about the general health of a wetland or riparian area in addition to giving us a sense of site water and habitat quality. When climatic and hydrologic changes occur in an ecosystem, amphibians are often the first to react. Their thin skin makes them vulnerable to temperature increases, chemical pollutants, disease, and radiation. The combinations of pollutants, habitat fragmentation and development in urban areas have had a negative impact on amphibian populations. In the Portland Metro area, everything from mutations of extra legs to complete absence of native amphibians has been documented.
