Tualatin National Wildlife Preserve

Monday, December 18th, 2006

The Tualatin National Wildlife Preserve has recently opened. It’s between King City and Sherwood, just west of the Tualatin River. The visitor facilities are still under construction but the trails and viewpoints are in operation. Here are a couple of images from a visit yesterday. The wetlands were partially frozen.
