Xerces Society

Johnson Creek begins in the volcanic hills near Boring Oregon, flows through Gresham, Portland and Milwaukie, and 26 miles later, joins the Willamette River. An especially beautiful, tree-lined stretch runs through Leach Botanical Garden. The creek is an amazing urban wildlife corridor, providing habitat for beaver, salmon, amphibians–and even mussels! The Xerces Society protects endangered invertebrates–animals without backbones–and their habitats. To learn more about our native mussels, check out this video produced on Xerces Society YouTube educational channel

Oregon Zoo

Last week, we met Fiona the hippo at the Cincinnati Zoo, but check out these videos from our own amazing Oregon Zoo. You’ll meet beavers Filbert and Maple, Blanche the eel, Juno the otter, Bebeto the prehensile-tailed porcupine, and more!
