Natural Resources

With approximately 70 parks and natural areas covering about 800 acres of land, the parks in NCPRD contain an impressive array of natural features such as wetlands, riparian zones, salmon-bearing creeks, healthy stands of Oregon White Oak floodplain and terrestrial habitats and a diversity of plant and animal species.

Healthy riparian systems, for example, can improve water quality by:

• Filtering pollutants

• Preventing soil erosion and

• Reducing water temperatures

By enhancing and restoring natural ecosystems, we improve fish and wildlife habitat and improves water quality for both people and wildlife and increases the livability and natural beauty of our neighborhoods.

Natural resource highlights in the parks district are the Mount Talbert Nature Park, east of I-205 and south of Sunnybrook Road, and North Clackamas Park, located off Highway 224 at Rusk Road.
