Neighborhoods in the northeast area of Hillsboro, Oregon are in a unique setting. They are located on Glencoe Swale, a small wetland nestled inside city limits. The riparian zone is lined by a dozen-or-so suburban sub-divisions, several schools, small and large businesses, as well as an airport.
Friends of Glencoe Swale, focuses to:
- inspire local involvement,
- build a stewardship team,
- educate the public about Swale-related topics and issues,
- provide ideas for improving wetland well-being.
