Community Tap Kickoff with Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership
Posted on October 30, 2015
When: 11/10| 6:00pm
Where: HUB | 2944 SE Powell Blvd.
The Columbia River is the lifeblood of our region, providing fishing, commerce, irrigation for farms, power, and recreation to the Pacific Northwest. Today, about 5.1 million acres of crops, including hops, in the Columbia River Basin are irrigated with water from the Columbia River and its tributaries. Yet the river is degraded. Since the 1880s, the river has lost over 50% of its habitat and current monitoring shows it is contaminated with many toxics posing a significant threat to wildlife, clean water, and our health.
To address these challenges, the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership brings together diverse groups —businesses, ports, local governments and federal agencies, Tribes, nonprofits, watershed councils, conservation districts, and others—to collaborate and find solutions to toxics and other issues facing the Columbia.
The Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership is our Community Tap partner for the month of November. We are sending them 1% of all our Powell brewpub pint sales throughout the month, so raise a glass to this great organization! Additionally, you can meet the LCEP team at our Community Tap kickoff on November 10, at 6pm.
