Reed Canyon is an urban oasis. Declared a wildlife refuge by the state of Oregon in 1913, this 28-acre headwater forest was left largely untouched and untamed until restoration efforts began in earnest in 1999. Restoration goals include improving the diversity of wildlife, managing invasive plant species, restoring native plant communities, and increasing potential habitat for salmon and other resident fish. Reed biology classes use the canyon as an on-site lab, and both professors and students regularly run research projects in the canyon habitat. Students also gain hands-on experience in restoration work as canyon crew employees.
