Its Winter in the Northwest….Best Time to Eat Lots of Delicious Local Seafood!

Planning a holiday gathering or meal out with a friend? Consider going to TWC’s longtime supporters; Nostrana, St Jack, La Moule or XICO. These restaurants each have a deep commitment to sustainable seafood and understanding of the importance of conserving and restoring healthy estuaries. Cathy Whims of Nostrana states it best “At Nostrana, our menu changes every single day, and we carefully choose our seafood options based on sustainability and freshness. We are lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest where there is an abundance of sustainably caught fish”.

Make a reservation or stop in with friends for a happy hour and support these great businesses who are making choices to support their community and environment. Take a moment to thank them for their commitment and involvement in conserving Oregon’s Greatest Wetlands.
