Help preserve Oregon's 'kidneys and lungs'

The Wetlands Conservancy holds its roving annual fundraiser, Wetlands & Wellies, on Saturday, Oct. 5, on Sauvie Island.

The event, which costs $100, features seasonal small plates cooked up by top chefs. This year, the fundraiser and feast takes place from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., preceded by morning bike, kayak and birdwatching tours on the island.

The event helps “conserve Oregon’s natural kidneys and lungs — our wetlands,” says Esther Lev, The Wetlands Conservancy’s executive director.
