As mixed-used redevelopment forges ahead on the Zidell Yards property, NorthWest Ecosystem Services Ecologist Paul Fishman took a moment to reflect on the project’s myriad undertakings in the nine years since cleanup efforts got underway in a recent article in the Oregon Daily Journal of Commerce. The project team’s accomplishments over the course of the cleanup include successful habitat remediation, removal of contaminated soils, reshaping the riverbank, planting native shrubs, and ongoing environmental monitoring, which has led to a healthy, more natural habitat for native plant and animal species.
