Watch Wildlife & Birds Adventures
Ridgefield Refuge is one of four national wildlife refuges, along with Steigerwald Lake, Pierce, and Franz Lake, that are located along the lower Columbia River in Washington. A local wildlife photographer finds the rewards of the Refuge's Discovery Auto Tour.
Gresham has over a half dozen buttes that are part of the broader Boring Lava Dome complex created from eruptions 100,000 to six million years ago. Most of these buttes are clustered south of downtown and gently drain to the north by the main stem of Johnson Creek. Take a hike through Forest Park East and discover the forested buttes that rise above Gresham.
